Cape Pond IcePosted: June 26, 2013
If you sit and watch for a while you realize that there is a constant flow of fishing boats filling up at Cape Pond Ice in Gloucester. Across the bay (on the far left in the sketch) there’s the historic Tarr and Wonson paint factory, best known for developing a copper paint used on the bottom of boats to prevent barnacles. I painted this building several times from a distance but never got really close to it like I had hoped to. I have to leave something to sketch for next year!
