"The Shrimp Boat" was inspired by a recent trip to Hilton Head. I had never before been to the beach and seen shrimp boats come in so close to the shore. They were definitely in the area where we had been swimming just a short time before. They coasted by and there were dozens of gulls and other sea birds trailing them. I am sure they were dropping bait or shrimp in their wake. It was a feast for the birds and a feast for my eyes! When I returned home I made this watercolor seascape of the scene.
