    More Schiele boats

    Well, one boat actually.

    I have tried to pay more attention to the composition and the palette than last time

    ... were you thinking of Munch's powerful influence on Schiele as you were composing the upper half of the painting?...

    I don't really know very much about Mr Munch except that he has a very expensive scream! Schiele has several landscapes where he uses this kind of sky. I know that Klimp was Schiele's mentor and he was very much influenced by the younger man, but the connection between Schiele and Munch I hadn't heard of. So that's interesting, Thanks!

    I've worked a little more on the painting and attached it. That's as far as i will go

    This work too is wonderful. Schiele influence (I saw his landscapes) seem faint enough, so it looks like Your own artistic sensibility is the main author of this gorgeous artpiece.
    As for possible connection between Schiele and Munch I found they both took part to a common exhibition in 1905, in their quite early artistic lives.
    Apart from this, Munch (Norvegian) is a symbolist and somehow expressionist painter and has little to do in my view with Schiele from a style viewpoint (except the fundamentally expressionist approach), Klimt, the master whom Schiele learned from was an Art Nouveau and then symbolist painter. Schiele, like Kokoschka, is one of the greatest master of the powerful Austrian expressionism, as far as I know.

    Thank you for your kind comments everyone.

    I'm not sure what to do about the "ghost sailor" Coops. He really should be more solid and in this world I think, but when I do that the painting just doesn't look right. I like the idea of him being ghostly though. Any suggestions anyone?

    That's interesting information Caesar. Thanks!

    The Klimt-Schiele relationship is very interesting. Klimt had always been an outsider and was continually being denounced by the Viennese art establishment as a pornographer, and although he had good friends and supporters, I think he finally found an artistic soul-mate in Schiele. Schiele once asked Klimt to trade drawings with him and Klimt said "Why? You are a much better draughtsman than me." A great compliment from Klimt who was himself a brilliant draughtsman. Tragically Klimt (who had had a stroke and knew he would never paint again, lost all will to live,) Schiele and Schiele's wife Effie, all died of the "Spanish" flu at the end of WW1 and within two years of each other. Klimt was only a little older than Picasso, who knows what he would have gone on to do.

    Just to complete this here is the finished version (or as finished as it's going to get!). I managed to de-ghost the figure by underpainting him in white on a layer under him.
