Steamship on the River Tamar

I decided to try to paint a black and white postcard from 1906 using light stolen from Claude Lorrain, and add a lurcher.

This was the light I tried to steal: 'Sunrise' and this was the postcard that I used for reference: Weir Head, 1906.

I feel slightly guilty not so much at having added a tree (other references suggest that you probably could find a tree at that time and position it like that) but more at having added a sunrise which is a bit more North than East.   But you know.  Artistic effects, etc.

Clearly I have a long way to go on getting the detail and river-reflections right, though I suspect the original is larger than A3, which does help.
