Preview: Watch James Dodds Create a Colchester Smack

October 21, 2015

James Dodds was a boatbuilder before he became an artist, and his shipyard experience shines through in this film showing him loft and paint a 20′ X 4′ rendering of a Colchester Smack, the iconic fishing vessel of his native East Anglia. For those who admire the steps involved in the building of a wooden boat, this time-lapse video made by his daughter Mary and wife Catherine is a remarkably viewing exercise.
