No27 in a new series of digital paintings of ships and boats of yesteryear.
A digital painting using, yesterday in DAP, of my vector drawing (not an automated trace) of The South Goodwin Light Vessel
The Goodwins have been responsible for countless wrecks; one of the worst in recent years being that of the South Goodwin Light Vessel in November 1954, when she parted her riding cable in a gale and was driven on to the Sands to become a total loss. Only one man was saved, miraculously sighted and lifted from the wreck by a helicopter after clinging to the rigging for eight hours.
Lying along one of the world’s busiest seaways, the Sands have always presented a menace to shipping and even today, despite the wonders of scientific aids to navigation, they lie in wait to extract a heavy penalty from any vessel which grounds upon them.
