Sailing Over The Ocean Blue
I sat on a bulkhead staring at a row of sailboats at my parents yacht club. There are no yachts there by the way. In fact, there's only a handful of small boats. It's just fun to call their club a yacht club. A big part of drawing is deciding what to draw. There was lots of sailboats to choose from but I had to chose one that was at the right angle for me to draw. Taking in the size of my paper and the fact that there is a tall mast were all factors. If the boat was too much in profile then it gets too small on my page. The more front on the angle is, the better. I chose this because it was near my bulkhead seat and showed a little bit of side. I liked the window. I also dug the complexity of the trailer. This paper can't take watercolor so I could only color it with pencils. I gussied it up with one of my rubber stamp letters. Haven't used them in a while. Now I'll probably put them in every drawing until I get bored of them again.
