Sanibel reunionPosted: December 24, 2018
This afternoon I was trying some outdoor drawing with my iPad, in my usual Sanibel spot, looking out at the canal and trying to figure out how to do a digital drawing of the palm trees, when this guy landed in front of me. I’m pretty sure he was the same guy as last year. He’s quite bold, staring at me until I start drawing him, and then preening and turning his head this way and that. The iPad is perfect for quick sketches like this because I can draw him in one position and if he moves I can start another drawing and complete the first one when he moves back to his original position.
Coincidentally, earlier in the day and using more traditional tools, I drew the same subject as last year when I first met the blue heron.
