This is HMAS Vampire. I liked the way the shadows were falling on the bow. In my youth I knew some sailors from the Vampire – my flat mate had a boyfriend from her home town who was on board. Now the ship is in a museum. Weird.
I was using a Tombow pen then a waterbrush to stretch out the shadows. At home I put a wash of battleship grey on the hull. The actual grey on the ship had a lot of yellow in it, but I had to be a bit careful translating that to paint or I’d have had a yellow ship.
