Several recent posts featured sketches I’ve done at the Quebec Federation of Hunters and Fishers museum. Most of those sketches have been of birds, mammals and fish. The museum is a wonderful place for drawing these subjects because the people are friendly, the lighting good, and the displays rival those of any natural history museum.
Because of all those animal subjects available, it’s been hard for me to draw any of the other objects they have on display, but I’ve eyed this “boat” every time I’ve visited. It’s not really a boat at all. It’s a homemade live well, used to hold fish. Its bottom is made of screening so that water can enter. It’s only about two feet long and truly a beautiful piece of folk art. Hope you like it as much as I enjoyed drawing it.
