Work in progress - STS Lord Nelson oil on canvas


It would have been nice to have worked form sketches made at sea but a selection of photos will have to suffice including this one...


starting with roughing out the boat and horizon in charcoal on canvas..


and giving a couple of background colour washes in raw umber and ultramarine blue mixed with viridian to give the work some shape...


forming the background heavy skies and the heavy seas ahead.
