For me, the next best thing to being out in the field is watching birds at the feeders. I do urge you to try this pleasure. I have trouble leaving for work some mornings as I get so wrapped up in watching the birds! Oh, to have a full day of this pleasure :)
I keep a journal just for my birdwatching. It sits on the kitchen table or counter along with binoculars, Sibley bird guide, mini palette, waterbrush, pencil, pen and micron pen. Pictured here is my new mini palette that is the size of a business card case. I purchased it from Maria Coryell-Martin of Expeditionary Art. I'm using limited palette colors by M. Graham that include: Hansa Yellow, Azo Yellow, Quin. Rose, Naphthol Red, Anthraquinone Blue, Ultramarine Blue, Quin. Rust, Nickel Azo Yellow and Sap Green. The journal is a Stillman and Birn, Gamma (100# ivory paper) - just delicious to work in!
