Hunt 422 Sketches

It was a beautiful morning.  It was in the sixties when we got up so were able to have the doors and windows open for a while.  It was 86 outside when I was sketching as you will see on the thermometer and is probably about 88 by now.  It is not supposed to get much hotter ... right!!

I sketched on the porch and at the dining table with a Prismacolor 01 fine line marker/pen.  These are freehand as always in the large sketchbook.

Number 1, animal feeder - the feeders for the hummingbirds.  We still have a couple hanging around.  I wonder if the one that stayed all last winter will do that again?  He/she would look so cold sitting all puffed up on the hanger for the flowers in the freezing rain.  Hopefully it will go south!
Number 2, light fitting - the outside floodlights.  They are right above the feeders to the right, but I didn't plan that so had no room to put it in the same sketch.
Number 3, napkin holder - my hand
Number 4, napkin
Number 5, knife and fork

Number 6, salt and pepper shakers
Number 7, patterned fabric - place mat from Bolivia
Number 8, outdoor thermometer - Gene's wireless rain gauge and thermometer with the readings of rain for today, rain for the past ??? of days, temperature outside and temperature inside.  Nifty.
