The Whalers

Original Watercolor & Casein, 14″ x 20″

For this painting I referenced an historic photograph of New Bedford, Mass that dates to about 1850 when whale oil was needed to light the world, petroleum had not yet been discovered in Pennsylvania (1859) and the exploding grenade harpoon had not yet been invented (1868).
