Sometimes It’s All About The Shape

Sometimes, as I walk around my city I find a building or scene that I think will make a nice sketch.  Sometimes it’s a thing, like a boat, a car, fire hydrant or maybe a statue in a park.

But sometimes, it’s a shape that grabs my attention.  That was the case as I was walking near the marina.  There are several large tugboats there and I noticed that one of them had an array of pipes and nozzles that, from the diameter of the feed pipes, must be capable of dispensing more than a little water onto a fire.  I couldn’t resist; I had to draw it.  Done small, in my little mustache book, I really enjoyed doing this little sketch.
