How to draw a sailboat tutorial

Let`s learn how to draw a sailboat.

When I was little I loved reading adventure novels about pirates. I gladly repeated strange words like BOM Bram the topmast. And I also painted sailboats – brigantines, barkentines … I painted them as I imagined, of course, they looked absolutely incredible. And I myself somehow felt awkward for my unrealistic pictures. Now on the Internet you can easily find images of anything, I, finally, can learn how to draw sailboats correctly.

I really like the book about a girl who was waiting for her beloved to sail on a ship with scarlet sails. So I found a picture with such a sailboat.

Now while forget about romance, we are going to draw diagrams and schemes.

I will not pretend that I am well versed in the rigging of ships, I will mention only the most important details. This is a two-mast vessel. how-to-draw-a-sailboat-028
