Finished Old Sketch

29 Feb

I recently added color to this drawing done last summer. A group of Plein Air Painters were given access to the Miss Portland Stern-wheeler moored at the sea wall in down town Portland.  In May this year look for a Nautical Art Show co sponsored by the Oregon Society of Artists and The Oregon Maritime Museum with work displayed in both locations.

The wheel is so large, there is a strip of flooring removed for clearance should the craft have to make quick maneuvers. The brass stand is for communicating with engine room.  Every time the Captain moves the lever, a bell rings and the lever action is repeated below decks. The engineer repeats the action to signal Captain message received


Thanx for your feedback and comments!
