Artist Alicia J. Stonebreaker, Polish born and trained at the Academy of Fine Arts, Poznan, Poland and the Kassel Art Academy in Germany, sketched this ocean side scene in Sept. 1973, of a working trawler docked at Biddeford Pool in Biddeford Maine. Alicia was very skillful with a pencil and it is easy to see how her formal training blended with her natural talent. This is a very technical sketch with a great sense of perspective. Note how she drew the beautiful flowing lines of the fishing boat hull and cabin, the fishing net raised over the ships’ bow, and the brilliant use of dark and light lines for the tidal water and reflections from the boat and dock pilings.
Biddeford Pool is the large tidal pool, located off Saco Bay south of the mouth of the Saco River on the south coast of Maine. Biddeford Pool is the site of Maine's first recorded permanent settlement, then called Winter Harbor. In the winter of 1616-1617, Richard Vines, a physician, resided here as part of the colonization efforts of Sir Ferdinando Gorges, lord proprietor of Maine.
