“Help with lifting the crab pots” (Guernsey in past times)


Absolutely brilliant, so beautifully drawn David.

A fabulous drawing - such detail and great composition, can see why you chose to draw it!

Excellent work, and a great subject.

A great drawing David, as it is such a good composition I wandered if it is a direct copy of the photo or have you used some artistic licence.

Interesting subject, beautifully drawn.

Beautifully drawn David.

Hi Barry, I used the boat and figures from the photo but added the cliffs and some boat details. The outboard motor could not be seen, so I researched it knowing that it would be from the 50’s and 60’s in Guernsey. It should be a Seagull outbound so I found photos and used those to draw it in. That’s for you comments and interest.

Very skilfully drawn David.

Thank you all for your kind comments

Graphite pencil drawing. This drawing was taken from an old photo I found of fishermen lifting crab pots off the coast of Guernsey.
