Why not start the New Year with a new skill? Bob LeFevre, who recently taught a workshop on drawing the human figure, will be holding a free and open-to-everyone workshop on how to properly draw and paint shrimp boats at the Eagle’s Nest in the Lake House on Thursday, Jan. 10 from 1-3:30 p.m.
This will be a discussion and demonstration, so just bring a note pad and pencil.
Although shrimp boats exist all around us, many times they are not properly depicted in our art. In order to insure accuracy and depict their true character, i.e., the scars and wear and tear of their trade, LeFevre has taken his boat and anchored next to them many times with his pad, pencils and paints. He has also taken the Natural History Group’s trips on shrimp boats to see them “at work.”
An artist since he was 9 years old, LeFevre has a keen interest in oceans, creeks and all types of boats. He has been an active member of The American Society of Marine Artists for over 6 years.
