China Camp, Too

February 17, 2009

After a minor rainout this am, we went into the little fishing village/mini museum looking for some suitable cover.

It’s just a few buildings and some boats – seems like there’s would be more activity here in summer. (There’s  a place that serves chowder!).

I was sure our luck would hold – just did a few drawings. But In some ways I like these better than the paintings. Its so easy to get detail into a sketch.

Goes to show, it’s worth getting out, even if the weather is trying to help you procrastinate.

    Marc,
    Good stuff from China Camp! My memory says that Jack London, in his pirating days on SF Bay, used to steal cargo in the China Camp area. So there’s some history to the place. I like the composition of the sketches and how you captured the atmosphere of the weather in your watercolors. Thanks for posting both.
    Frank
