An acrylic Watercolour painting with its subject taken from a magazine advert in 1989
I painted this by hand while I was at CREATE, as an exercise between various art commissions and design and desktop publishing studies on the Applemacs of the day.
I have included a slideshow with this painting containing four images. Three of them are enhanced versions of the original that were created in PhotoStudio. I have lettered in the text of the Repsol Advert shown in the second and fourth images. All four images are listed in their order of display as follows:
Oil Rig [Oil Effect]
Repsol Advert by Dave Draper
Oil Rig Twilit [Oil Effect]
Repsol Advert Twilit
the text: Sniffing out the Oil in the Mediterranean, was my own invention created for the occasion; plus another non-textual version lightly enhanced with an Oil Painting effect.
The Entry is available in the Art section of the Pulldown Menu. I have also lodged it in the Landscape Section, subtitled as a Seascape View.
