a-shrimping we will go


Just across the lane from Our Place on the Bay, the Bed & Breakfast we are staying at, a shrimp boat was waiting for its next trip out. So I sat nearby and drew her. Early each morning the crew takes her out, then returns to load up their trucks with the day's catch.

  1. Beautiful, Vicky! I just love the gear detail. Looks like a nice place to spend time, too. When we visited our son during his time in Seattle we'd always go to a fisherman's dock. The setting wasn't right for me to spend time sketching but I was lusting for the chance.

    1. Usually docks have so much to sketch, it's overwhelming. Here, there was only the shrimp boat, a catamaran, and small fishing boat. Part-way into this sketch, I was wondering why I chose the most complicated one!
