A fine sunny day for a sketch led me to a small dock. There were about ten ships and ten thousand individual strands of rigging, so I took this as an exercise in simplifying a complex scene.
About 10cm square in a Stillman & Birn sketchbook.

What fun that was. Great sketch! I like the wash too.

I really like that. I like the way you've suggested the rigging. :)

That is really well done. The frame lines set it off nicely too.
