Where photos help!

Boats are notoriously difficult to draw but the shapes and lines (particularly the negative spaces around them ) fascinated me. I did improve thanks to an exercise in continuous line drawing but for accuracy I really could have done with a photo when scaling up to the largest painting I did on the course (22 x 18 inches). I attempted to simplify the shapes ( like Terry Frost) so that whether it was correct or not didn't matter(!) but I didn't go far enough.  It was also a bit rushed being the last day but I was finally 'in the zone' not wanting to stop painting.
