Boats at Rockport
One of the things I’ve been looking forward to is the chance to paint some working shrimpers and lobster boats while we’re in Rockport, Texas. This is from a reference photo taken at the dock behind a local restaurant. “Rookie” is the name of the boat.
We found this boat sitting alone at a dock behind a bait shop. It was obviously a working boat, but it wasn’t until later that I realized there was no name on the side. Maybe it’s on the stern. Every one of these boats appears to be a little different, either in terms of the shape or the equipment.
There is an abundance of new material here, and I’m looking forward to seeing what I can do with it.
