Today there were seven of us that showed up at Ferran Park in Eustis, FL
It was another gorgeous day with a few areas of clouds but sunny and quite warm. It was 85 when I left around 11:30ish.
Although on the warm side, there was a nice breeze. Unfortunately it was also quite buggy.
All around were squirrels playing and birds to include an Anhinga I sat maybe 2 to 3 feet away from with its wings spread out drying. He stayed put but definitely kept his eye on me.
Frogs were croaking and then there was the sound of traffic a few blocks over and chatter from nearby folks walking their dogs or sitting. One man with an elderly lady in a wheel chair sat to my left and he was fishing as the lady sat and watched.
As for sketching, I decided to do some quick sketching looking out across the lake from where the Anhinga and I were sitting. I started on the right page sketching with my brush rather than pencil or pen. The left page I worked my normal sequence.
Stillman & Birn Beta / W&N watercolors / Falcon for right page and Lamy for the left.......both with Lexy Gray ink
