Plein Air at the Zoo

I brought my watercolor pencils and a new sketchbook along to the zoo yesterday and managed a quick sketch. I am rather distressed that I managed to get the perspective of the zebras vs. the landscape so very wrong (the zebras are entirely too small). But, live and learn I suppose. Actually overall I'm happy with this because usually my watercolor pencil work is entirely too stiff, and here I managed something a little closer to what I actually want to achieve. I really dig the zebras themselves, so I'm including a detail shot of them. This is about 6x9.
