Suzanne sketching 'Endeavour' at the North Wharf of the Australian National Maritime Museum

Captain James Cook sailed the Endeavour , which was built in 1768-71.
The Replica ship built in 1994 has "30 kilometres of ropes and 750 wooden blocks or pulleys; 
the masts and spars carry 28 sails that spread approximately 10,000ft (930 sq m) of canvas".
Members of the ASMA AIR Programme spent an enjoyable day sketching and painting this vessel - 
maybe not every detail of the rigging was included by me - more sketching needed!
