Not sure why the Golden Hind was famous, but it was a fairly early one, going by the lines. I perfer the clipper ships, and shall do one later, but wanted to start out on a more simple one, as I've been thinking about doing a ship for yrs, but now is now. Painter 8

Can't you? It's not magic, easier than a face, just a few more parts on some. I've been loving ships since th 5th grade, and drew hundreds back then, but haven't painted one since the sixties. Clipper comeing soon, nothin' but sails.:cat:

I have tried several times on canvas and ended up turping them off LOL there is just something about ships, boats, or any kind of water vessel that I seem to have a block with of course I don't get out in the water in anything either. :lol:

Greg,

This is very nice! I love especially the way you've painted the sails with multiple colors and vertical strokes following the sails' contours.

For those who might want to learn more about this ship (including me), the Golden Hind, here's the interesting wikipedia.org Golden Hind page:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golden_Hind

In case you miss the link at the bottom of that page, here's the link to a long article on the Golden Hind at the Houghton Mifflin College Division site:

It's getting close, maybe it will get finished, as I want to do some more, newer ships.

GG (Great, Greg) I love the sails and the rigging and the guns and the sea...

Kinda makes you want to do one, huh? Well, make one. Everything gets divided into layers so the rigging has it's own layer, etc. just makes things go smoother, unless one gets bogged down in layers and I have/do. I talked to a guy one time, that said he worked with a 100 layers in his stuff, but for me, twenty is the top, and most don't need even that many. Thanks

said to me; I won't even be answering his wong, and it also rememinded me why I left that place in '04. Now; sorry, that is so sweet, and I'll try to think positive, and let these angelic words soothe my acheing head. Thank you. G.
