#524 In the field: Brookgreen Gardens aviary, con't . . .

Start this series with  #522,  April 16, 2014.

Brookgreen Gardens is an accredited museum that is home to America's largest and most important collection of figurative sculpture.  The purpose of the world renowned museum is to collect, conserve, and exhibit 
American figurative sculpture in a beautiful garden setting and to educate a diverse audience about 
sculpture, horticulture, and the ecology and history of the Lowcountry.  

The museum also collects, conserves, and exhibits the plants, animals, and cultural materials of the South Carolina Lowcountry and is a wealth of information, education, and visual excitement for the artist.

Brookgreen Gardens is located in Murrell's Inlet, South Carolina.

While teaching a bird sculpture and anatomy workshop at Brookgreen Gardens this month, I had the opportunity to photograph, experience, sketch, and model sculpture studies in the museum's outstanding aviary and zoo.
Below,  are images of the Black- crowned Night Heron taken in the aviary.

Below, I'm modeling a quick head study sketch of a Black- crowned Night Heron in the aviary.
