We had a break in the weather ... and needed to get out of the house, so my husband and I went over to our local duck pond to see if we could photograph some ducks on the wing. Fortunately I took my sketching materials along. These two geese were so nice. First I took their picture, then I sat down on the curb just a few feet from them and sketched this on location. It is such a treat to be close to my subject.
Sketched with water soluable graphite and watercolors.
... and we got some wonderful photographs. I got a flying wigeon and Dale photographed a flying great blue heron
