This was a 20 minute sketch where the idea was much more ambitious than the time allowed... I spent too much time drawing the neat number detail (pretty modern looking for 1820, I have to say) that I ran out of time to do justice with the paint. The general idea of the ship tossing on the waves and the scenery comes through though, I think. Clocks, especially old clocks, are an endless source of design inspiration! Pen and watercolor, approx. 4 1/2" x 6 1/2".
