Titanic Painting - 6 foot by 3 foot wood panel

I love when I get the chance to do something that I have never done before. When this customer emailed me and told me that they wanted a large mural painting of the Titanic I was a little nervous. I didnt know how I would be able to add my own style to something that has such a distinct image in everyones heads. The good thing was that he left the whole painting up to me. I started with whitewashing the veneered wood and laying the basic layout of the ship. I wanted to only use 4 or five colors and make the piece look crisp and clean. It ended up looking extremely industrial and the customer loved the piece. The painting changed the whole space and it is the first thing that people see when they walk in the door.
