sketches and anticdotes about my interests and travels
Monday, 12 May 2014
Last night our sketching group met at Britannia Yacht Club. Due to the late spring very few boats have been put into the water, so there was lots to draw.
Aside from the boats one of the things I love about harbours and boat yards are the various mechanical devices and equipment. Most of these objects are unabashedly functional and inevitably a little dinged up and rusty. I even like the names - bollards, winches, sponsons, davits, engine wells and the like.
