Lake in the Woods, Douglas County, Oregon, USA
The sapsucker appeared to have accepted my car. He sipped, waited for more sap to fill his 'well' and then would sip some more. Only rarely he tapped at the edge of his hole, removing a little more bark. It was very pleasant sitting so close to the sapsucker while I waited for the weather to clear.
Sketched with a fountain pen and Platinum Carbon Ink. Fortunately I had my watercolors within reach too. When I'm prepared I have a small set of watercolors in my dash compartment, a old anchovie jar full of water strapped to my door handle with a napkin to blot excess water on, and three brushes tucked in my visor over the windshield. Whenever I let someone else sit in my seat, I have to admit they eye that jar of dirty water rather suspiciously.
