The Tempest

Leave a comment



Yes, I know…this is a very common subject to paint. There are like millions of similar looking paintings everywhere. But somehow I have always liked to paint a ship struggling to sail ahead in a stormy sea. It represents optimism to move ahead in life despite all obstacles.

And also, yes, It does draw its inspiration from William Shakespere’s ‘The Tempest’ and thus shares the name as well.

I had painted it as  a school kid in water color and later as a miniature oil painting for practice and finally the present one, as a full scale painting.

Oil on canvas
