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.
