Plein-air pen and wash on paper

Victoria Shipyards.

Leave a comment

Today I was called out to my employer’s Victoria office to help out with some background information on a project that started out in the days before I retired.

On my way back to Nanaimo, I noticed these huge ships sitting high and dry along Harbour Road. It did not take me long deciding to park the car in a 2-hour zone along this road and started sketching.

Unfortunately the view from my car was obstructed by a row of storage bins or dumpsters, not sure what their purpose was. Anyways, in my sketch it looks like these steel boxes are pedestals for the boats; definitely not so. It is something to keep in mind for future on-location sketches.
