Caran d'Ache Supracolor, Derwent Inktense, Watercolour pencil, Wharves and Boats, Wharves of Cape Sable Island

Another Wharf

Another Wharf…no, not a half-Klingon security officer, but another of the harbours of Cape Sable Island. One of larger wharves, Clark’s Harbour wharf has plenty of colourful lobster boats operating from there. I took a photo for this image late last year and have only just got around to painting it.

As is my normal practice, I used the Derwent Inktense pencils to really put some colour into the boat hulls, trims and things like the red lights, lifebelt and balloon on the top of the third boat. After that I switched to the Supracolors for the rest of the painting. I particularly enjoyed the challenge of the wooden posts and jetty edges, with the rope bannisters, something that I have not seen used at other wharves in the area. In fact is is fascinating to see the differences in materials and formats used in the wharves , even on such a small area as CSI.
