Foredeck Sunset by angelac Foredeck Sunset by angelac
Painted this while waiting for a friend to arrive. The sun setting over the Christian river and the Kalmar Nyckel. This was a very quick painting in a looser, rougher style than how I usually work.

and PS... I do watercolor, and teaching people to do the kind of easy, loose, clear, uncluttered, unmuddy watercolor you do is what I aim for........

This is where knowledge of the subject shows through. I have a gazillion photos of Kalmar (what a ridiculously awesome photo op she is!) from every conceivable angle, but the only time I've attempted to draw/paint a ship (Pride of Baltimore II, for a holiday card)(I had to check it with the Captain and had a "line to nowhere") I was mindblown by all the lines (which have to be in the right places). 

Really cool stuff.

Thanks! :) I've found that painting ships is a lot easier now that I've sailed on one and I know what the parts do. But yes, they are exceedingly complicated!

Pictures like those always amaze me because you have to draw the lines just right. There's no way of ereasing them.

Drawing in ink is actually a good exercise - it can help you to become less attached to each individual drawing and also help you to learn how to draw faster :)

I love ink, I use it on my own, yet just with those ink pens called rapidographes [link]
What do you use? Those pens? [link]

This was done with a ball point pen that I bought at an office supply store...

Well, I need something portable that I can carry with me while I'm sailing.

Makes sense. Carrying an ink pot could be unmanageable.
