Red Sky In The Morning Bluenose Sunrise Painting




I took many photos of Canada's famous schooner Bluenose II as she was docked in Lunenburg Harbour, Nova Scotia in February of 1989; however, none of the photos seemed to have the angle or light to inspire me to paint this beautiful tall ship. A year or two later in the summer, this beautiful schooner was among many of the tall ships that came to Toronto Harbour where I took more photos but the day was dull and light was not what I was looking for. I painted this painting of Bluenose II in April 2015 using one of my Toronto Harbour photos as reference (bottom image); however, I painted the Atlantic ocean sunrise background and misty morning foreground from my imagination. This meant I had to adjust the light on the boat to suit the light source in my painting. The light in my photo was ordinary dull daylight from above. The light in my painting comes from the low sun on the horizon and its reflections in clouds and water which meant that the light on the ship would have to come from below. The light on this ship is based on my experience, observations and entirely from my imagination.

Tall ship Bluenose II photo




Here is a brief Wikipedia description: Bluenose was a Canadian fishing and racing schooner from Nova Scotia built in 1921. A celebrated racing ship and hard-working fishing vessel, Bluenose under the command of Angus Walters became a provincial icon for Nova Scotia and an important Canadian symbol in the 1930s. She was later commemorated by a replica Bluenose II built in 1963; leaking and worn out, she was dismantled in 2010, and rebuilt in the same shipyard as its ancestors in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, and launched in 2013. The name "bluenose" originated as a nickname for Nova Scotians from as early as the late 18th century.

According to the official Bluenose website: The original Bluenose schooner was launched on March 26,1921. In addition to being a proud fishing vessel, she became undefeated racing champion and Canadian icon. Today, the spirit and history live on in Bluenose II. As Nova Scotia's sailing ambassador, Bluenose II is a proud representative of the province and its maritime heritage. Bluenose II was launched in 1963 and has acted as Nova Scotia's sailing ambassador ever since. It has visited ports around the world, welcoming visitors and serving as a constant link to the glorious age of sail.

Hanne Lore, such work as this is of an excellence beyond words. As we know, it is light that makes for a great artwork. Since you infused it with only your personal interpretation of the light source to go by, the result is so much more greatly astonishing (and the true test of an artist). L/F
