Maine Boats, demo drawings and art by kids and adults, children's drawing class, 8/8/17
Skiffs, sailboats, lobsterboats, and Friendship sloops today. We started with the 'easier' boat, (though none of them are easy. Students worked following along with my demos. Each boat shows a little dimensionality. No simple silhouette views here. Some of these kids had boating experience and taught me some finer nuances. Note the sailboat with three people in the back. With all that weight there, the boat would be 'planing', which has something to do with what kind of water it would be displacing. I will have to investigate further. Or maybe someone will explain it here!?
