I used Bristol board 24" x 18", KOH-I-NOR pens number 3 and 4, black ink. I have the originals scanned by FedEx to a flash drive in pdf file format. I then copy the file to jpg on my computer for submittal to this forum.

Re: Sailing ship HMS Victory:re-at anchor and at sea

The pennants seem at odds with the prevailing winds. Victory used sprit sails rather than the later-style jibs from the bowsprit? I think but will not swear that it should be the latter. Beautiful ship in any case.

Re: Sailing ship HMS Victory:re-at anchor and at sea

Thanks hoplite for pointing that out. I felt a little side sheer breeze for one moment causing the pennets to turn left in the picture. I will watch out for that to not reoccur. As far as the sprit sails, the picture I was looking at as a reference had the sails as shown in my intrepretation?

Appreciate the comments:

Well done interpretation.
Ship looks dangerously top heavy... some of those really old ships were.

I suspect you did a good bit of research to do this so well

Thanx 4 posting, this pleaseth our eye, greg

Re: Sailing ship HMS Victory:re-at anchor and at sea

1st/2nd raters with three gun decks looked awfully slab sided. They simply weren't elegant like frigates, so I think that was captured very well. Pretty much gun platforms that could sail.

The Victory was actually pretty old by the time of the Napoleonic wars, so it might have an older sail plan. Looking around web: it seems to, indeed, have had a couple of sprit sails it could deploy in addition to the jibs, though it probably used the jibs more (sprit sails did diddly for turning a behemoth like that, but could be used for downwind sailing).

I don't care much for the clouds; I love everything else about the drawing.

Re: Sailing ship HMS Victory:re-at anchor and at sea

These are lovely works.

The one in the sea... majestic. You have captured the spirit, scale and detail so very well. The clouds remind me of the Japanese woodcuts. even a distant mountain is interpreted sometimes in similar fashion.

Water is hard to do. This is very well done. Where do you get your ideas for doing water in pen and ink?

Re: Sailing ship HMS Victory:re-at anchor and at sea

Hello, Dkk:

Yes water is a challenge, however, I have been blessed with finally figuring it out, at least my interpretations. I have several books that really helped me find a method of drawing clouds and water along with shading using pen and ink.

One book in particular is by: Clarence P. Hornung, i.e., "The Way it was in the USA, New England", pages 24 and 25. This and two other similar titled books are a compilation of old engravings. Very nice work in these books produced by some of this countries greatest documentary artists whose work was widely disseminated in newpapers and magazines.

I have all three of Hornungs books and they are very inspirational.
Good luck with your work.
