Title – Troubadour April 19
Description – Commission. First time drawing a boat. Prismacolor Col-erase was used to outline the boat and important details of the clouds. This is my 2nd attempt at the drawing as I hated the clouds in the 1st one. After much thinking, looking at photos, making sketches, finally completing the sketch to be used for the boat with using all my drafting tools, it was time to add colour and to hopefully make the drawing come alive and please my client for her husband’s birthday. And thankfully the birthday boy was very happy.
