Rockland Breakwater & Friendship Sloop sailing past, and Maine birds - student art displays from adult and kids' art classes, 8/21-22/17
In the final drawings students used continuous line drawing first and then colored as they wished. The reference was a quickie painting I had done years ago at one of the annual Friendship Sloop races. There had only been time to draw quickly whatever I could capture. I did not then have a camera that would catch anything that far away. The lighthouse I could only ever draw through binoculars. Only later at home did I paint in the drawings. When boats are racing, this artist, who is not a sailor, must do plenty of guessing.
