“HMS Surprise”

by artist Jim Stevens

Abstract Linear Painting (click on image for full view)

To me, great sailing ships have always captured my imagination and their motion under sail begs to be honored in art. In my abstract linear technique, from the film “Master and Commander,” I painted the HMS Surprise. A ship of the wind under full sail.

Painted on a clear acrylic panel that floats over an abstract painted on a komatex panel. The portrait of the ship is painted without shading. The abstract painting creates all the shading in the portrait.

Two paintings – one image.
