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.
DePaula is known at the Island Artist. From the time he was knee-high to a crocodile, DePaula has wanted to draw. DePaula wants to bring people the beauty, the colors and the sense of relaxation of the islands he loves. He envisions a world in which beauty is as important as function, where culture and history are fiercely preserved, and where islands are havens to be protected.
DePaula creates a world of vibrance and subtle mystery. Williamís world is filled with vivid life and color. The pictures give you an energy of what was painted or drawn. The work is a blend of the dramatic influence of the early masters and the simplicity of the modern masters. To learn more about the Island Artist visit, http://www.theislandartist.com
