Sketches from Truro

Postby mdmattin » Fri Jun 16, 2017 9:40 pm

We are visiting Truro, MA on Cape Cod and I've been doing some painting and drawing. Edward Hopper lived in and did many paintings of Truro, so the inspiration factor is high.

Setup with ships. These sailing ships appeared one by one in the bay off of Provincetown a couple days ago. Eventually there were four. I think they're connected to the upcoming Tall Ships event in Boston, as they all left heading north yesterday evening.

I thought there was a certain sense of reverence when I saw the pen and ink illustration before reading the text. I was going to make a crack about you working up to a sketch of the Hagia Sofia, but a moment before I read his name I remembered the Edward Hopper connection (I was reading up about him the other day, my memory prodded by rereading Paul Johnson's A History of the American People). An apt sketch, nicely judged Matthew.
