Re: Victory

Wave action is outstanding and the sails well-done. Really like the ship in the distance. 40 yrs ago, I took a couple of workshops with Charles Vickery. He was a native Illinoisan (really!) who painted magnificent sailing vessels, especially Clippers. I came within an eyelash of winning the bid on one of his demo ptgs. Ptg went for $1000. Same demo recently sold at auction for $10,000.

He certainly was a master. One of his is 'Bittersweet Victory' of HMS Victory being towed away after the Battle of Trafalgar.

Re: Victory

Hey Jim,
Great repro on Vickery. As you know his ptgs were quite large (altho his demos were typically 16 x 20 or 18 x 24). a 36 x 40 is on sale at his gallery for $30K.
Can't figger out how Charles who lived in the middle of the US could envision seagoing vessels. Altho he did spend some summertime in Maine.

When I painted this, I hadn't even heard of him. I just Googled him and found out he had painted the same scene.
I have been reliably informed that we are both wrong as the towing ship only had one row of Gun Ports!.

Re: Victory

Wonderful painting Jim, I applaud your attention to detail with the sails and rigging. Lovely work on the water too. I did some work in Portsmouth a few years back and it's an impressive ship to see, it's an interesting contrast to the enormous aircraft carrier next to it!

If you'd been there in 1965, I could have waved to you from the Carrier!.
