Art Every Day Month – Day 12

I decided to play with paint for a change. I have a postcard of Joseph Mallord William Turner’s painting, The ‘Fighting Téméraire’; I love the colors. What’s interesting is that there are many images of this painting on the web that render the color in vastly different ways: some are paler, some darker and more foreboding. This one most closely resembles my postcard. My rendition certainly doesn’t hold a candle to the original classic, but it was fun to do, and I’m mostly pleased with the result.
