Relying On Memory

I have painted schooners, lobster boats, sail boats, row boats, shrimp boats and oyster boats so many times that their shapes are second nature to me.  So anytime I need a boat in a painting to add interest, I go to my repertoire and experience with boats. 

If you have an interest in some subject, draw it until you can do it on demand.  Find out what interests you, then study its shape and draw it from many angles.  I love all things afloat, and have learned a lot from boat owners and sailors.  Know what you love and show it to us!
