On the Easel...

I usually like to just look at something and start putting paint on the canvas,
 but not this time. These boats, with their odd proportions and the way they
snug up to the dock required some planning. Using the old fashioned grid method,
I drew this composition onto a large canvas.
 
 
and here is a little progress...
 
I am researching these little boats and am learning a lot about the difference between dinghies, dories and skiffs.  I'm trying to discern if all of these types are included around this dock.
