The James B
Painting - Watercolour On Paper
The James B, a typical Great Lakes fishing boat on Lake Erie's north shore harbour of Port Dover, Canada, once part of the largest fresh water fleet in the world. Today these boats still fish the waters of Lake Erie, Ontario, Michigan and Superior for fish like Smelt Pickerel and Yellow Perch, a favourite among locals. Like all fishermen, these people plying their craft are a hardy bunch, usually leaving the harbour around 4 AM and returning in the afternoon through all kinds of weather and late into winter until the ice gets too thick for the boats to get through.
I can attest to this when invited to spend a day fishing about 30 mile out into the lake in late December in order to get some factual painting references. Needless to say, the watercolours I brought along to create some painting roughs where useless so all I could manage to bring back were some pencil sketches and a pair of cold hands that seemed to take forever to warm up.
