Magic boatPosted: August 20, 2012
I am always excited when people suggest things for me to sketch. My friend George thought I might be interested in drawing this rowboat (he calls it his “chaloupe”) that he inherited when he bought his cottage by the lake. It’s a bit of a magic boat because when it’s out on the lake, water pours in from a bunch of rusty holes in the bottom. And yet when it’s on land it fills up with water that just never seems to drain. I struggled with this sketch for a long time. I hope it reads as a boat full of murky water.
