    Commissioned Ship Portrait
  • My most recent commission: a portrait of the oil tanker, Delaware Trader. The client wanted to depict her heavily laden in rough seas taking a wave over the bow: an iconic look and a fun compositional challenge. It required a balance between showing how a fully loaded vessel her size would break through the waves, rather than crest them, while not losing sight of her immensity or making it seem like her final hour.
