“Ngalawa Sketch”

 

This was painted en plein air during a trip to Africa in March 2007. The “ngalawa” is a sailboat native to Zanzibar and used by fishermen. The skipper of this boat took us out for a very exciting sail on a gusty morning, but here it is the previous day, with sails drying during a low tide. This is on Chumbe Island, a wonderful eco-resort and protected island and coral reef just off the coast of Zanzibar.
