The Shipwreck

The Shipwreck is a 2D oil painting. This painting can be considered to be realistic and representational because the photo is not far from being what the actual scene would look like. In the painting you see three boats that seem to be taken over by harsh storms and rough waters they are traveling on. The colors are realistic and the textures of the water and the people are all realistic. I chose this photo because it is simple, but is very real looking. Also the simple blasts of color from the peoples clothing catches your eye. Great, simple painting that conveys a very realistic message.


  1. wow! there's a lot of movement in this painting.

  2. There definitely is! It's amazing how you can feel the movement on something that is completely stationary! I saw this picture and fell in love with it. I love it!
