I just finished this painting of the French ship of the line "Soleil Royale", which was constructed in 1670 under Louis XIV and served as a flag ship to Admiral Tourville. Oil on canvas, 40 × 60 cm.

I love those kinds of ships 😊

They almost overdid it with decorating ships with gold in the 17th century 😊

King Louis the 14th? The same monarch who said the immortalized, “I am the state”?

"L'état c'est moi", yes. He was commonly called the sun king, thus this flag ship was called after him. "soleil royal" translates to royal sun.

Thank you very much. I had to look up what exactly that is, it was a pleasant surprise for me :D

Can you draw boat fighting each other?Like naval combat.

DamianOswald's avatar

I could, yes, but I'm not too sure that's something I will ever do.

Why not, it's cool, but eh, your choice

It's very cool, yes, but I don't have too much spare time and have other projects prioritized.
