Lobsterboats & sailboats, Rockland Breakwater & Marshall Pt. lighthouses, and Maine farming! - student, (adults and kids), drawings. Art classes, 8/15/16 & 8/22/16

Mixing the classes in this posting. The adult class art displays also show some of the exercises we did. The exercises serve as warm ups and as practice in observing or thinking of a subject or visual aspect in a different manner than we are accustomed to.

Today's class, 8/22/16, was the lobsterboat going home past Marshall Point Light. Big rebellion in the ranks because the boat in the reference material was so small as to even see it was a lobsterboat! The problem is that unless the boat is a huge boat, it will show small behind a whole view of the lighthouse. But see here how we did it this time!! Yes, but that is not really a lobsterboat. It is a much bigger boat, the mail and ferryboat, Laura B. We managed to rustle up some copies of my photo of the Laura B. heading home past the lighthouse.
