Ultonia Under Purple Skies

Painted a unique scene of the S.S. Ultonia (Cunard liner), meant to kind-of resemble an old postcard. 4x6" mixed-media paper. My first time ever painting a ship like this.

That is really good, both in the drawing and colour.

Re: Ultonia Under Purple Skies

Thank you! I hope get more detailed and less wobbly with my lines though.
Forgot to mention, this 100% gouache over a pencil sketch.

Nice work, spoilt I think with the title in the sky.

Yeah, I was looking at old postcards that had ship names written on them.
But thank you.

Re: Ultonia Under Purple Skies

Really nice work on this. The dark hull and bright sky have a dramatic feeling. I checked out your website and liked it as well. I look forward to seeing more of your work. Gary

Re: Ultonia Under Purple Skies

Very nice! All the small simple suggested details really come together to make it look like a fully detailed ship. As someone else said, the dark hull against the bright sky gives it a nice back-lit look.
