Forgot to post this. I painted this back in P-town. Shrimp fishers on the dock, in front of the Donna Marie, my favorite P-town trawler. Gouache and watercolor.

Some studies of individual bone groups. Tyrannosaurus Rex pelvis as viewed from behind, and an Apatosaurus left foreleg. I love how the Apatosaurus has that single sharp claw on the inside of each foot.

Allosaurus and Tyrannosaurus Rex sketches. Drawn at the American Museum of Natural History in NYC.

Two very different animals: Deinonychus, a quick, agile, feathered dromaeosaur from the Cretaceous, and Prestosuchus chiniquensis, which isn’t a dinosaur at all.

Prestosuchus interested me mostly because of its upright posture, which I didn’t actually end up including in this sketch because I got too interested in the vertebrae… oops. I love the way both of these skeletons are mounted at this museum, but the Deinonychus in particular has a beautiful pose.
