I am always drawn to the water and the Port of New Bedford is very vibrant and challenging. The port of New Bedford is the highest valued commercial port in the United States. Most of the vessels are commercial scallop fisherman trolling south of Nantucket. Tonight I was able to draw this sketch on site (en plein air) on a beautiful summer evening. The “Hear no Evil” is a commercial scallop fishing vessel and was built in 1987. It is also one of the larger fishing boats out of New Bedford. This was a very challenging view in that now only was I looking at the tow vessels in the foreground, but also the masts, outriggers and lines of an additional 10 boars in the background.
