The Telamon

Last year I was frustrated to discover that the power plant I sketched was blocking the view of a wrecked ship.

I was Soooooooo excited about coming back to Lanzarote to draw this wrecked ship!
I walked the 4km from the hotel to the wreck site, to gear myself up.
All the time I drew people were drawing up in their cars to take photographs.
I was frustrated after ten minutes drawing when I realised that in my eagerness to start drawing I’d held my sketchbook at a funny angle, so that sea looks as if it’s listing. But it adds to odd angle of the ship.
Later in the week we were having tapas in a little restaurant and the owner told us that in the summer kids climb up the rope ladder at the side, so that they can climb up on deck and jump into the sea.
