Sketching at the University of Santo Tomas last March 23, 2013

March is the start of Summer in the Philippines. It's now scorching to above 35°C! We decided to push through with visiting the oldest existing learning institution, the University of Santo Tomas in Manila. The 400 year old university has a museum. We had planned to sketch some of the collections in the morning, but had to postponed it to layer that afternoon due to a closed poetry recital. Naturally, we sketched what interested us at the campus.

We had lunch at one of the restaurants in the campus, and the 5 of us out of the 10 who attended that morning stayed to visit the museum to sketch.

We had a fun time sketching the Natural History section where the collection of animal specimens were found . They weren't moving which made them easier to sketch.
