A 50-gun frigate with her staysails hoisted, calm and fine, awnings spread
This pen and ink drawing is unlike other drawings in the album and the handwriting is unlike the rapid hand that he used on sketches from life. Possibly it was drawn for teaching purposes to demonstrate the rigging of the ship. The skilful use of washes on the sails is typical. Later in his life Schetky developed a technique of drawing with a quill pen and using the feather to apply washes.
