Shipwrecked: 24 x 24 mixed media painting of the Peter Iredale, a ship wrecked and abandoned on the Oregon Coast in 1906, by Joan Pechanec


Mixed Media: collage, oil, cold wax on birchwood panel
24” x 24” x 1 1/2”

This is an abstracted image of the Peter Iredale, a rusted and decaying steel barque shipwrecked and abandoned in 1906 on the Oregon Coast.

The painting is heavily textured and layered. I used oil sticks and mica chips to create an iridescent effect (not visible in photos), which changes from different angles as the light plays on the surfaces.
