A digital painting of Mary Celeste in the rig she wore when found in 1872 by 

No29 in a new series of digital paintings of ships and boats of yesteryear.

A digital painting of my vector drawing (not auto trace or copy) of my interpretation of the Mary Celeste wearing the rig that she was originally found in. The sails had been professionally furled, she was rigged for rough weather and one lifeboat was missing, all of which points to the fact that the ship had been caught in a storm and the crew had abandoned ship believing that she was about to sink…..

The Mary Celeste drawing is in the vector format (no auto trace/copy) and the sea and sky are digital paintings.
