Day 18 of the 30 in 30

Last winter  I saw a Cormorant up close . He had been sheltering from a cold bitter wind on the

 shore rocks. I was able to be about 4 feet away and he was huge about 3 feet tall with feet that

 were 4 or 5 inches. I had no idea that they were so large. When you see them they are at a 

distance. Here it was on my morning dog walk; they were gathered on a loose float in the 

middle of the marina.I have wanted to do a painting of them since first seeing one up close,

 but their colouring isn't very inspiring.  Now I thought I would give it a try.
