April 15th, 1912

titanic

In the collective psyche of humanity, few peacetime disasters stand out with greater impact than the sinking of the RMS Titanic. Built with state-of-the-art maritime technology and declared unsinkable, the world’s largest ship sank on her maiden voyage, taking 1,500 people with her. Her memory lives on through books, movies, artifacts and photographs. This was painted from one of the last photos taken of the ship as it left Queenstown, Ireland. I limited my palette to Paynes gray, Prussian blue, orange and white. Acrylic on watercolor board.
