Master of the Sea

Description: Created: September 10, 2005. Well, this one has been a LONG time in the making. I actually started it probably a year or so ago. I drew the boat and just wasn't really motivated to continue. Anyway, one day I was going back to work on it again, and the entire directory it was in had disappeared. Now, I'm a computer guy, and I don't usually LOSE entire directories. I looked for it, tried to recover it, no sign of the folder anywhere. So I thought, OH WELL.

Fast forward to a couple months ago, and I really felt led to start it again. Every time I heard the song 'Master of the Sea' sung at church, something told me, 'You need to do that picture', because I'd had the idea for quite a while. SO, I started the long process of making this picture. I started in late July, and have been working off and on since then, mainly on weekends.

I'm extremely happy with the result, it's probably the most complex thing I've painted. Three people in one picture, plus the environment. Figured out a way to make the clouds more realistic, and figured out how to do the rough waves, which is something I was stuck on for a while.

So it was a good experience, and I hope this picture will be a blessing to many people.
