Shipyard



For some time I've been painting with Acrylics, almost exclusively celtic designs (which I'll upload when I have time), but one day I saw a photograph of a ship being rebuilt and spontaneously decided to paint it. Astonishingly, about two years of dithering and trying to get up my courage later, I finished it, and even more astonishingly, it was acceptable enough to show people.

There are plenty of mistakes if you look at the original (there's a rather badly painted ladder that I keep meaning to cover over) but it iwas a massive step forward in confidence.

I'm now starting sketches for a partner painting, so any suggestions and feedback are welcome...

I really like this! What a great use of color. Leave that poor ladder alone, keep it as is.

Welcome to the forum btw!

This is great! I would not have thought it was the work of a novice unless you told me. I'm with Susan, I don't see any problem with the ladder.

Welcome to the forum.

Many thanks for the kind comments... It is encouraging that people who can draw and paint appreciate what I've done.

The ladder isn't visible in the photo unless you know it is there, so it only annoys me...

That's great, I get the feeling you understand the construction of ship's, do you build scale models. That is if nothing else technically very accurate. I love it, thanks for showing.

Thanks again for the kind comments. The painting is a slightly compressed veryion of a photograph that took my fancy one day. I think it was from a website for a shipbuilding company.
