Big Ship

A nautical painting heavily inspired by Montague Dawson.

Big Ship

I always wanted a big ship painting, so I decided to make my own.

The effect of light shining on and glowing through the sails was hard to get right. I greatly enjoyed watching it all come together when painting in all the little ropes at the end.

The (much bigger) original painting is “Land Ho! The Clipper Ship North America” by Montague Dawson.
