WRECK OF THE BATAVIA

WRECK OF THE BATAVIA

Acrylic on Canvas

This subject gave me the opportunity to portray rough seas and wild skies using thick paint and bold brush strokes with a touch of colour in the flag to enliven the scene. The sad story of the wreck of the Dutch flagship, off the west coast of Australia and the survivors can be found at http://museum.wa.gov.au/research/research-areas/maritime-archaeology/batavia-cape-inscription/batavia
