Whenever I get really stressed, I like to stroll around the zoo. It never fails to calm me down. I especially love to sketch the animals that I see when I go to the zoo, this time the birds! This is a sketch I did today at my visit to the zoo. By focusing on a subject, and transferring that subject onto a sheet of paper, it is easy to forget the stress of the day. Next time you are feeling particularly stressed out, why not try a trip to the zoo? Draw the animals if you want to, or if not, try photographing them, or even writing about them! You come out of the experience calmed down, and with a stunning piece of art!
