Painting Boats and Harbors (Dover Art Instruction) By Harry R. Ballinger Cover Image


Artists who love the sea and dream of capturing every aspect of its beauty will treasure this lavishly illustrated guide to painting boats, skies, and picturesque harbors. Written by an award-winning artist and teacher with decades of experience in the genre, this step-by-step guide covers every topic from art materials and equipment through composition and painting techniques.
Seasoned artists and novices alike will appreciate the author's simple, yet authoritative style. In clear, nontechnical language, he discusses the structure of boats, offers advice on choosing a subject to paint, and shows how to avoid the pitfalls that can await painters of the sea. On its own, or as a companion volume to Ballinger's Painting Surf and Sea, this volume will inspire any artist with the desire to produce beautiful seascapes. Includes eighty-five black-and-white illustrations and an eight-page insert with nine color illustrations.
