Lusitania wreck I painted for fun. Acrylic on wood 18x30. Got the idea from a Ken Marschall painting of the same angle, but I wanted to go darker and dingier with it. Thanks for lookin.

Thanks! I was also inspired to paint it from your ‘sinking in real time’ animation. Good stuff. Lucy doesn’t get enough love. She’s the ugliest wreck ever.

The bow still has some dignity, at least it did back in the 90’s when it was explored last. I’d bet she’s in really rough shape nowadays.

Here’s another painting I made of the bow. Acrylic on canvas 8x10. Had fun with this one.

I've read that part of the reason why the wreck is in such bad shape is because it was sometimes used as target practice.

That's quite a shame. :(

And is the Lusitania decaying faster than the Titanic because she's so messed up and in shallower water?
