A ship has sunk, its cargo fallen into the sea. Amongst this cargo was a chest full of costumes and masks, fine silks and pearls, great riches to go to waste on the ocean floor. But someone has found it. Here I was working to a deadline for my course – I planned my time badly and ended up with only half a morning left to paint an A1 picture. I’m a slow worker, so this wasn’t ideal! The original is really big, so this is a photograph, but it's been ruthlessly cropped. Acrylic and oil pastel. Comments/criticisms welcomed.
