Boat with reflections

On Sunday morning I went to the marina about 6:00 AM. It was pretty deserted so I sneaked down past a fishing boat on the marine railway and found a place to sit on the dock to make this sketch. As I worked, the sun came out and illuminated the boat, and gave me wonderful reflections to paint. I like the rich colors of the pilings.

This marina is a wonderful place to sketch with all kinds of boats and docks and marine machinery to draw. As I worked, a couple of fisherman showed up and started working on the fishing boat on the railway. I chatted with them briefly as I left the dock. Reminded me of the days when I worked for Petersburg Shipwrights in Alaska.
