Nautical Studies

Regularly I sketch boats, partly from imagination and partly from life. And I have acquired old master drawings with a nautical theme for quite a while (a collection initiated by my grandfather).

I will always try and include a local boat into a landscape where there is water and I enjoy looking at the many variations of rigging and hull design according to their use and locality.

The sketches, my own and those I collect, are often useful as reference.
