Outrunning The Storm
Painting - O/c
A sailing ship trying to stay ahead of the weather on a green sea with huge thunder clouds in the background. This early morning scene is a drama unfolding far out at sea. There is nowhere to run but away. Storms like this can destroy the largest of ships and this one is no exception. The water in this painting is of thalo green, thalo blue and burnt umber. The white water around the ships bow indicates that the wind is pushing the boat at a high rate of speed. The ship is in full sail and the morning light is reflecting off the sails and the bow of the tall ship. The reflection of the schooner can be seen in the foreground water. The huge thunder heads going miles into the sky are highlighted by the morning sunlight coming from the left side of the oil painting. A hardy crew and an experienced captain are what in the end will save the ship and the voyage. This painting is copy right protected.
