Fishermen's Terminal

My first post on the blog!

A couple of sketches done at the Fishermen's Terminal today.  It was raining and I never got to take out the egg tempera kit that I wanted to try, just sketched around with acrylic inks instead.

The first one is of the fishermen's memorial.  The sketch is a tad bit livelier than it really was -- grey & wet.

The following one is of a single ship.  And no, it was not the sunset behind the ship -- it was the reused sheet of watercolor that I used to sketch on.

Both of these will form part of a book that I hope to bind by hand, made from sheets of watercolor paper that I cut up and recycle this way.  I do a lot of paintings on watercolor paper and have an appallingly low rate of success and it is somewhat pleasurable to not have to throw all that good paper away.


  1. VK, we all get to use creative license when dealing with Seattle weather. Don’t be too critical when it comes to a successful effort, beauty is in the eye … … and we 'are' our own worst critic. Great sketches.

  2. Beautiful sketches. Great color...I love the abstract and loose quality about it.
