Pirate Mary Read
Mixed Media - Mixed Media
When you work a lot with island art and have friends who are treasure divers, you end up having to draw at least a pirate or two. Here I wanted to make a series of Historical Pirates that are very striking and a unique series. People all too often drew pirates in a Historical style context, just like the great N. C. Wyeth had done. He had perfected that particular style of pirate art, so here you have a contemporary and graphic, mixed media pirate series. Here we have the Pirate Mary Read. This pirate artwork is best shown as a full set or series. Mary Read dressed up as a man in order to join Calico Jack's pirate crew. Here in this portrait, I decided to get more of her feminine side.
