Inspiration for a fun boat pattern!

When I saw these lovely little boats were all lined up on wooden slats with the sea in the background I thought this would be ideal inspiration for a rowing boat design. To create a pattern firstly I identified the sections in this photograph to create a linear design; starting in the foreground you have the wooden slats, then the boats, the textured rocks and finally the sea. Experiment with how you graduate through these sections and how you use your marks to show the difference in texture and line to really create something graphic. With your colour you could take this many ways from fun and bold to realistic and deep but make sure you test them first before you apply them to your design!
