    They sank in this storm, ships overloaded with trade goods. The gunwales were too low. What cavalier greed does to us. . .

    Feels to me a little like a dark tonal intro to a concert. . .

    ... and it makes me feel in a sort of Dutch Roll after a joyful little drink... I like the subtle, gaseous strokes here.

    thanks, everyone ...

    I used to show "Morte a Venezia" (Death in Venice) in a film class, just so students could see how Visconti was able to paint in film ... Also to let them hear Mahler ... As the prelude took six hours to paint, there was no one left standing, or sitting, to listen to a concerto :-)

    Thanks, Weeks ...

    You know, when I was living in New York, I'd go straight to the Met to see Juan de Parera, I'd look at it for hours ... I never saw anyone trying to copy it, and I certainly didn't dare ... Now I know it can be done ...

    This is very wet, very full of water. Love it. Are you just using Oils and smooth mixers to get these affects? The colors are rather opaque, which says oil, but the affect is so wet it says watercolor to me. I understand its all digital, but its an effect worth pondering.

    Steve, thanks for asking ... "Rough seas" was done almost exclusively with the chalk tool, and I may have added a very thin (<10% opaque) oil wash ... The chalk is brushed out with the Nomad brush, repeatedly until the desired effects are achieved ...
