Sketch of the Day: Lightvessel at anchor, Nyhavn

The Lightvessel Fyrskib XVII Gedser Rev, decommissioned and permanently moored along Nyhavn canal. Once a floating lighthouse, essentially, built in 1895, now a museum ship. And a real beauty, moored to the dock below our window. Watercolor over pencil, 5" x 8" Moleskine sketchbook.
