German freight clipper PAMIR

Hello to you all,
this one i did not long ago, it´s the german PAMIR that sunk in a hurricane storm, i think it was in 1956.
It´s watercolor on 46x60cm Arches 300g paper.
I´m not really satisfied with it because there´s one huge mistake in it. The direction of the sails does not correspond with thw wind and water direction.
I masked out the sails and later the water did´n really want the way that i did.
But with watercolor you have no chance to correct it big time.
So, thats it now!
C and C welcome, - and enjoy your christmas time!

Re: German freight clipper PAMIR

still, it's a nice painting. great waves.

the barque pamir was commissioned in 1905, was the last commercial sailing vessel to round cape horn. she went down 21 september, 1957, off the azores, taking 80 of her 86 crew to davy jones locker.

Re: German freight clipper PAMIR

....thanks randall,
........hmm, okay it was 1957, only four guys were rescued, i read a book of it written by one of them. The sister of the Pamir, the Passat, can still be visited in Northern Germany. A few weeks later she was very close to sinking also. Her load, think it was wheat or something, drifted over to one side.

Great job, Udo. These square riggers really are fabulous vessels. A pity this one was lost, taking so many of her crew with her. Davy Jones must have a big locker.

Hi Udo,
another terrific painting of a very beautiful ship.
Our youngest daughter and her husband crewed on square riggers for a few years and we were dragged around the world, viewing and visiting, we love them.
Well done,
Jane.

I think it's great, don't really notice the wind vs sails thing.

Re: German freight clipper PAMIR

Really fine job, Udo! Boat looks great, and I also don't see a problem with sales and the wind. Actually, with the waves so big and intimidating, I would give the command to furl some of the sails if I was the captain

Re: German freight clipper PAMIR

Hi Udo,

Great rendition of a beautiful ship; I wouldn’t worry too much about the sails, wind etc.. Only the purists would pick it up; she’s got a “bone in her teeth” and driving down into the next trough, maybe getting ready to tack.
The overlapping crests give authenticity to the sea swell and the linear perspective of the same works well.

Regards,

Max

Re: German freight clipper PAMIR

Hi Udo, great effort for a very difficult view point, you don't see many clipper ships from above
The 'Flying' "P"s,were at the end of the sailing ship era, they were big ships with small crews, steel masts and yards and steam winches to handle them.

Regards Jim
