"Pirate Nest"

Puerto Rico got me thinking about pirates during the early exploration centuries.  The English called the island, "pirate nest".  Here's a study kinda jumbling a few ideas together from the trip.

Awesome!
It's like simplified/exaggerated realism. It looks real and yet lighter than real.

I really like this! For some reason the compressed preview looks more pink than the full size version. I like the atmospheric perspective the pink gives it, tho!

Love this! It's awesome, especially the wrecked ship in the fg - it really sells the story of the piece!

Hi Tyler,

I attended your workshop at CTNx a couple of weeks ago and I have to say that I left really inspired. I was happy to see some artwork related to Puerto Rico. My parents are from the tiny, beautiful island and I have painted landscapes while on summer trips.

Be well,
Isabel
