If you feel your sketchbook needs a dash of salt, join us for a day learning to draw and paint boats, ropes, harbours, reflections and all things maritime, from quiet rivers to stormy seas.

Please note, this workshop is a repeat of the virtual Maritime Sketchbook event held on 13 March.

Local artist Claudia Myatt is a well known marine illustrator who will help you navigate the tricky waters of drawing boats, painting the colours of the sea, tidal river and harbour scenes.  We will also take a fascinating look at the history of maritime art, which for many centuries was done by sailors rather than by artists.

Our virtual voyage begins at the working boatyards here in Woodbridge and then and takes us down river and out to sea in calms and storms, from dinghies on the beach to tall ships on the ocean.

Suitable for beginners as well as experienced artists who feel they need more confidence and techniques to tackle these fascinating subjects. You certainly don’t need to be a sailor to draw maritime subjects; you just need to have a love of the sea and the desire to have a splash of salt in your sketchbook!

Draw and paint with us:

  • colours of river, coast, sea and sky
  • colours of mud, sand and rock
  • reflections
  • calm water, moving water, waves
  • all sorts of boats, from dinghies to ships, and how to get the proportions right.
  • harbour scenes and working boatyards

Claudia works mainly in watercolour and pens, sketchbook style, but you are welcome to join us with whatever medium you feel most comfortable.

To help you prepare we will send you a short list of suggested art materials to bring with you.
