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.
