Viking Longship at Sea – Speed Paint Oil Painting Illustration

Sound An Alarm! Vikings Are Coming!

Some of history’s greatest seafarers, an inspiration to all those with an adventurous spirit, or a plundering one for that matter.

I decided to try something new with this small piece; a speed painting.

I really struggle to get a good amount of time in for a half decent painting session, working on one of my more thought out artworks and as a result, most of the time end up not painting at all. With that in mind, I had a couple of hours spare and decided to just go for it and try my hand at a speed painting.

Anyway, here it is –

Not bad for approx 1.5 hours work, very sketchy and loose but that’s how I intended it, in fact, I would have like it looser but that’s a learning process for me, I usually get too sucked in to details and this helped me to begin to step back from that.

I have every intention of getting another speed painting done soon, I’m kind of aiming for at least one a month, in between my other working sessions as it keeps things fresh and allows me to experiment.
