Taiwan Fishing Boat
An old Taiwan fishing boat tied up at a harbor in Kending Taiwan. What caught my eye was the very narrow frontal perspective. It looked so top heavy, I expected it to topple over. There must be quite a large mass below the waterline to balance it. This particular boat has seen better days but still earns it's money by going out every night to catch what the sea will offer. Such brave men-these fishermen. Noodler's Ahab flex pen with Carbon black ink in a Molskine watercolor journal. Color washes were added after I had finished sketching the three views. Don't know why I drew the front view so small-maybe to emphasize how really, really small the bottom was.
