Angie's Monday Art Class was a fun one this week. In fact, I'm not really done with it & plan on playing around some more.
The task was to create a piece inspired by the Canadian artist David Blackwood. He paints amazing night seascapes, featuring icebergs with ships above and whales below. You really must check out his work!
I've been wanting to try my hand at drawing ships lately - no particular reason why, though I've read a few books partly set on ships. Not the new, sleek kind, but the kind with multiple giant sails, a worn wooden hull and ropes flying everywhere.
So that's exactly what I did!
I started by searching for images of ships & found a few that I liked. One in particular was a diagram with the parts of the ship labeled, so I thought that would be a good one to try first:
Then I went ahead & drew a couple ships based on the images I found:
I added a bit of colour because I love it.
That's all I've done so far. I'd love to revisit David Blackwood's work & try my hand at whales & icebergs next!
