Sinbad’s Fifth Voyage – II

Here’s how the painting is doing now — as you can see, I’ve added a large number of elements to it. Generally when I do a painting based on a classic, I like to do it pretty “straight”, and then add bits after I’ve started. Unfortunately my little camera doesn’t pick up many subtle colours, so in reality there are a lot of pale shades that just look white in this shot. Anyway, click it to zoom in.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
