One dock in the Nanaimo Harbour is exclusively used for crabfishing and accessible by the general public. There seem to be always people on this dock throwing crab traps in the water and retrieving them with a catch of crabs. If large enough the crab goes in a bucket and will probably end up on someones dinner menu.
One has a good view of the float plane terminal from this pier, but it is always cold sitting down here. However, today was perfect; a bit of autumn sun and no wind so I used the opportunity to make this sketch using only three colours: ultramarine blue, raw sienna and burnt sienna, and of course the black pen.
A float plane is shown in the there somewhere. The one I wanted to draw was oriented sideways and would have been more recognizable. But guess what, similar to cars, after you start drawing the beast the owner comes out and takes it for a ride.
