Email This Page to a FriendPreview: How To Draw Good Boats, With Jerry Rose
December 1, 2011
Drawing boats helps us see their shapes more clearly, so we invited Jerry Rose to show how he goes about it. Jerry’s known for his powerful, skillful, and evocative paintings of the Maine Coast and the Bahamas. He is also a total boat guy, a shipwright who has built a number of wooden boats for himself and others, a long distance sailor, and to this day a champion oarsman in both single and double skulls. We hope this introduction gets you started sketching boats. All you need it a pencil and some paper, after all. So next time you’re aboard at the mooring or at the dock, start putting a few lines down and see where you go with it.
