Sailboats have been a common theme for artist’s to paint,  each of the paintings above is by a different artist.  See how each artist’s painting is unique even though they all portray sailboats.  Using the below directions create your own unique sailboat drawing.  This is just a basic guide for creating sailboats.  You can draw any kind of sailboat, (see video),  you can hold your paper either vertically or horizontally,  If you’d like to include more than one sailboat, remember atmospheric perspective.  The further away it is  the smaller it will become.  Include the shoreline and background.
