Drawing Boats & Ships Day 1 – TAS, 1 OF 2 {Oct 4 2017}

Since we live on the coast we need to have ways of drawing boats. Drawing boats can be tricky because they involve ‘compound curves’. This means that traditional linear perspective needs a little help from some other concepts. Here is the way I approach it: I use the ‘infinity sign’ method if the boats are close to eye-level, the ‘leaf’ method if the viewer is above the boats, and the ‘beak’method if the boat is coming directly at the viewer, such as on a beach tide-line.
