Fantail 2008

This was done years ago, but it had never been entered into the County Fair-until now.

12 x 12 inch gallery wrap canvas. Source photo is a 30 year old shot taken with an instamatic camera from the fantail of an Adams Class DDG {Guided Missile Destroyer} somewhere in the Mediterranean.

This is the starboard side of the fantail.  The port side contains the hatch and scuttle which gives access to; aft emergency diesel generator room, electric shop and a electrical store room and a bit more work room.

I'd not worked with gallery wrap before nor have I toned a canvas before.  I used acrylic paint.

The deck's been changed in colour. My oils instructor mentioned the close values in the photo can make the deck to seem invisible. The increased change in value is artistic license and to eliminate the potential problem. Such are the limitations of film.

Not much text about it, but there are progress photos.  Figure they might help someone out.

I have a question for all of you.  Was this helpful?   After all, there was no dialogue like there was in 'Lady at the Well'.  Are progress photos of completed works something there's interest in?

I find it very helpful and really appreciate you taking the time to share your progress.  Even though I am working with a different medium, it is helpful to see choices you made and how they work together when complete.  I am partial to oceans and find your color application and transition especially interesting.
