The figure eight lesson has proved popular so here is another boat painting. Grouping similar objects, either by overlapping or connecting their shadows is a good way of emphasizing your subject matter. Plus, you rarely find one boat isolated from others. If you do, for instance in a photograph, just move them around a bit in your composition so they are touching or overlapping is some way.

Remember also, the rule of thumb in multiple repeats is to try for an odd number---3 or 5--so that you don't get stuck with symmetrical balance.
