During his travels, Fritz visited numerous zoos and animal reserves to draw the animals on site. He often used pencils or watercolors on paper because this way he could travel with little luggage. This brush drawing of a kangaroo was made in the Amsterdam Zoo. You can see that the artist only needed a few minutes to “throw” the drawing on the sheet of paper. But it took him many years to learn how to draw like that.
