You did a great job on the sailboat.  Nice billow to the sails.

I am still working on mine.

Yes, it is another great class.

I'm going to make my start today, still haven't been able to see the last 1/4 of the video (just like old times  :smitten:    :2funny: ) but it may take me a while to get that far.  ::)   I thought about making it bigger... but I think I'll stick with the 8"x11". Don't want to make this a career project! Sure beats drawing boxes, eh Kathy?  :2funny:
Cheers, Val

 :thankyou: :thankyou: :thankyou: :thankyou:  Mea, Kathy, Jill and Val for your lovely comments.  I thoroughly enjoy all the lessons and just wish I could spend more time doing them but life is busy.  Looking forward to seeing your sailboats ladies. Come on now, get the pencils flying.  O0

This was a great lesson, but my sails didn't look like yours because I used a different boat.  This is one that is in Hawaii waters.


I tried to get the nice billowing effect that you folks got, but was not as successful.

I think my sky came out well.

It was a good learning experience.

Oh, I did it on hemp drawing paper.

 :heeha: Wow Mea, this looks much like the 3-masted schooner Challenge from Toronto! Very cool!!!  :clap: :clap: :clap:

Do you have a photo for this? I'm a bit confused by the set of some of the sails so not sure which ones are correct. Which would invariably make a difference on how to help with the shading of the sails.

Cheers, Val

 :clap: :clap: :clap:  Very nice Mea, it was an interesting lesson. I am just wondering if your paper is too rough for the tooth is very visible. Don't mind me expressing my opinion but the thought just hit me as I viewed your drawing which clearly shows vertical lines.  It may be my computer, but just check that on your computer screen Mea. Anyway, you did a great job.     Patricia

 :clap: :clap: :clap: nice work, mea! I love your clouds!  The reflection of the boat in the water looks really nice too.  Did you have a photo of the boat you drew to get the shading of the sails?

I just started the sailboat drawing last night. I must say it is much easier to understand the process of everyone's sailboat drawings working on it at the same time. This will be a new dimension of understanding for me. Your sailboat is the first I've observed since I started mine. I'm impressed that you are finding the shadings of your boat on your own. I have to watch every detail as Nolan explains. On your boat, it looks like all the sails are going the same direction. Is that how the wind was actually hitting the sails?  :boat:

Thanks, KathyS

Here's the boat I used. 


Hmmm... back to the drawing board.  I can see now that I have some tweaks to make.

Thanks, Patricia.  I thought so too.  I used hemp paper which is very rough.  Am trying to find uses for hemp as we are trying to get a hemp industry started in Hawaii.

Very nice drawing Mea.  I think doing the drawing with pastel pencil on hemp maybe an interesting exercise.
