Good day for a sailPosted: June 25, 2012
I have looked at these boats at the yacht club many times and even started several drawings. But each time I attempted this I got caught up in the details of this complex subject and I wasn’t very successful in my rendering. Today I started with a different idea — just try to capture the essence of these boats Shari! What is the essence of a sailboat? Masts, booms, rigging, sails, and hulls. The rest is just details (at least for a sketcher). So lots of verticals and even though the masts are not very accurate and the rigging sometimes leads to nowhere I think I can safely say that most people will understand that these are sailboats.
