MOIRA HUNTLY    Book Number: 86074    Product format: Paperback

There is something so restful about a waterside scene, yet often the artist finds difficulty with boat shapes. This specialised publication begins with looking at tools and equipment and choosing a medium, then naming the parts of the boat, looking at shapes, perspective, proportion, light and shade, aerial perspective, reflections on water, details, texture, composition, putting the sketch in setting and working from reference. Discover drawing techniques for the basic shapes and construction of boats, characteristics and details of different types of vessel as well as many other aspects of marine subjects. Packed with helpful hints and tips and close up detailed drawings, make your seashore come alive and avoid sketching with your back to the sea! Boats in groups and rigging are particularly fascinating. Dotted lines converging upwards show how the vanishing points of most elements in the drawing lead up to a high eye-level, for example. 64 page large softback, packed with illus. 8" x 11". For beginner to intermediate level.
