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.
