BATTLER of Greenock, Scotland
I have posted both the color and black and white scans because they're so different. Which do you prefer?
This is a drawing of a tug boat called BATTLER that is out of Greenock, Scotland, near Glasgow. I drew this from a photograph taken by Barry Watson found on his blog, one of my favorites. The blog tracks the ships and boats traveling up and down the upper Clyde river in Scotland. Beautiful photography and dreamy details about the boats. If you're into boatspotting this will become your favorite blog.
I may one day draw other tugs from the region, KINDEACE and WARRIOR III.
Thank you, Mr. Watson, for the lovely photos.
