Titanic wreck painting WIPThis image show some of the working for a painting done back in 2012, on the centenary of the sinking of the Titanic. The final painting was to be an oil painting, but to get there I had to do some research as it was not possible to go down to the ocean floor and take a photograph! I used Photoshop to draw out what I wanted to achieve in terms of composition and how to draw the ship in its wrecked state. I referred to a number of books on the subject and studied diagrams of how the ship hit the ocean floor with such force that the bow buckled and ripped along the hull. During the drawing up of the Titanic I wanted to understand what the ship is like when new and how it is constructed so I spent some time looking at photographs and illustrations which aided me in creating the ship as it is now.
