Why do illustrators always draw these old-fashioned claw-footed bathtubs, even though no house built in the last half century actually has them? Well, just think what a modern bathtub looks like. A basin inside a box that fits flush to the walls. It’s not curvy or fun in the least. Boring. Claw-footed tubs are much more fun to draw.
Yeah, I know. I forgot the faucet.
Actually, I didn’t forget so much as chose not to draw it because A. I don’t really like how it looks, B. I thought it would distract from the bubbles, and C. I didn’t think it was necessary to convey the idea. 🙂
Rocks and Water
Here’s another collection from my Wisconsin trip. Mostly rocks and water in black and white. Most of them are from the shore of Lake Superior in Duluth. Yes, I know that’s not in Wisconsin. But it’s on the way. The first three are from Sister Bay, which is in Wisconsin.
Some of these are available as prints.
