This wonderful mystery ship, the Kaisei, is moored in Alameda on the estuary. It seems both a kind of broad-shouldered, hard-working vessel as well as a sailing ship. It has so much rigging I am tired of sketching it — so I decided to paint a detail. A local sailor happened to be rowing by at the time. Watercolor and pen, 10″ x 7″.
