The Elements Of A Ship

This past Thursday I got a chance to reportage the Amistad. I was invited to sail aboard it from its voyage from Mystic Seaport to New London, CT.  I have drawn the outside of this ship on a few occasions but this time something new caught my eyes and I saw the ship in such a different way. The ropes, the hooks, the chains and the sails! The textures! The combination of these materials were amazing to draw. Here is one of the drawings from my three hour sail. -Danielle
