Mainly did a portion of the main mast today.
The newly added ink texture  makes a lot of difference.

Also did a bit of work on a rope and more additions to the texture of the aft mast.

Here is the result so far:

The ship Batavia, an ink drawing(WiP)

Thursday, September 30th, 2010

Started this drawing about a week ago.
I visited this  full size replica ship in Lelystad  this summer and made a few sketches there.
Set up the main lines of the drawing in pencil, then got to work with pen and ink. Lots of details, it is going to be fun hopefully.

The Batavia itself is quite ornamented, I’m going to leave some things out.
The replica of the Batavia is an  artwork by Willem Vos.
I myself are not convinced by some of the details. So my drawing is going to be different from the replica ship.
I will also leave out some of the rigging to make the drawing itself better.
Otherwise it going to be a very cluttered picture:(

The size of this drawing  is about 32×45 cm
