Plein Air Watercolor of the Vultures at Mary Jo Peckham Park, Katy, TX

This week, took the bike out to Mary Jo Peckham Park. It’s a a little fishing park in a small town just outside Houston. There’s a playground, an indoor swimming pool free to all county residents, and a pond stocked with bass, rainbow trout, and catfish.

The place is FULL of vultures. The whole area has vultures. Golf courses, parks, mall parking lots… Vultures flock here like other places have pigeons.

So I decided to load up and go paint them. At one point while painting them, some ducks wandered up and about twenty MORE vultures swooped in hissing and posturing to run the ducks off. It was very surreal.

There’s a video of the the painting process up on the youtube machine here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IPBF-lJvJr8&list=PLUaBuRlaP-h7ZF0tfnnu6deFqcum835fn&index=1
