Canoe Drawing – Mike

Canoe Drawing

Hi Matt,

I really enjoyed working on this one – it was a bit like putting together a puzzle. I’ve got two questions.

First, I’d like to improve the sense of depth. The reference photo feels pretty flat (I think that’s because it’s taken with a long telephoto lens). I suppose I could adjust the definition between the figures and use line weight to improve the sense of depth – is there anything else I could do?

And second, I’ve left the water pretty sketchy. I didn’t want it to feel too stiff. I find water difficult to draw – especially moving water – and I think I need to do a few water studies to get a feel for it. Any advice?
