He wanted to sketch one or two fossils and after that some of the stuffed birds.
So here’s my sketches for you to have a look at. My stuffed birds were (there is a huge cabinet of them to choose from – though it is a little dark) the head of a Rhea (A5 ‘ish – Pencil) and a Heron about to pounce. (A4 – pencil)
Below is my sketch of the skull of a Rhynchosaur.
“Dating to about 220 – 240 million years ago. These reptiles had powerful jaw muscles and rows of small round teeth. A tusk like bone projected from their upper jaw for digging up roots and other food.” RAMM
The fossil fragments, mostly of the lower jaw, are held in a brass frame, forming the shape of the skull. So that you can see what you are looking at.
A4 – Biro
