Polly Woodside by Elaine (jaguarish)

Polly Woodside is a "tall ship" preserved at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre in Melbourne, Australia, and forming the central feature of the South Wharf precinct.

She is a Belfast-built, three-masted, iron-hulled barque. The ship was originally built in Belfast by William J. Woodside and was launched in 1885.  For more history see:

This is just a continuous line sketch of the upper half of this ship done while waiting to meet someone.

  1. Love reading the information about this ship and your continuous line drawing.

    1. Thanks Ann, it continues to be a favorite technique of mine!

    1. Thanks Donna, wish I'd had time to do more of the ship -- there were lines EVERYWHERE!

  3. I love that you did a continuous line sketch. That must have been so hard. I'd get lost in the lines.

  4. What a wonderful idea to do in as a one liner. We often see the tall ships in SF so I will try to remember to capture one this way next time. Thanks for the idea. I really like how this looks!
