More Sea Sketches

From the other moleskine: A memorial on Monhegan; lines, fancy work and a pulley; even more lines; and Micah taking the rowboat out for a spin.

A Landlubber Once More

Ahoy. Sorry for the lack of posting, but I've just returned from a top secret research trip to Maine. Here are a couple of sketches from my trusty watercolor moleskine. First, the fish market on Monhegan Island (try the fish chowder). Also, if you ever visit Monhegan, be sure to stop by what just might be the coziest library in the world. Next is an odd view of an aloft rowboat aboard the magnificent Lewis R. French. If you yearn to set sail on traditional tallship (and National Historic Landmark), you cannot do better than the French. Best crew in Maine.

Apparently Not Waterproof Ink

Unintentional, but interesting.

The Convenience of "Living History"

If you're working on a book about George Washington, residing in Philadelphia can be pretty handy. Just stroll down to the area around Independence Hall on a Saturday and presto: More costumed models than you can shake a souvenir Liberty Bell at. They do a good job staying in character, too.
