Sketches from a Northern Europe Sailing
| September 24, 2013

We have so many talented guests! Star Clippers guest Paul was so kind to recently share his photos from his northern European tour on Star Flyer. In his final post, he’s shared some sketches he made along the way.

None of the sketches were or are intended to be finished articles in themselves but rather to serve as a basis for future paintings. I use the photos for further information on a scene, colour, shading details and so on. Many of the sketches have little stories and definitely memories. When I do the paintings, the holiday comes back to me. So its good value as I get to enjoy the holiday at the time but I get further pleasure from it afterwards.

I did this from a pontoon that was pitching and tossing like a bucking-bronco at Mariehamn.

Okay, confession time: I did this from a photo. It was far too complex to do on the spot.

We bought some icons in the church shop that cost about 23 Euros.
