Ahoy,
Just got me some nice looking shots from our new member Ed, and I have to admit, as a non artistic viewer, I like them, hope you like them as well.
Please your comments.
Here a painting of an impression from Delfzijl[port in Groningen]early '50-60's

I think they are great Ruud. The best thing is that his subjects are worker bees and not glamorous butterflies.

Ahoy,

Here a shot, from Ed's paintings, I think this is a so called Fore-Castle of a ship or is it called Prow?
Anyway it's "misty"!

One of our seagoing members will correct me if I am wrong, but I think that it was a requirement in the past to ring the ship's bell when anchored in fog. Is this still the rule today?
In any event the paintings and drawings are splendid.

Here an impression of the departure of the ORANJE;the photo sended to me was a bit small, so I enlarged it a little, but not in her favour.

Ahoy,
Here a drawing dated 1975 by Ed,she was made at Travemunde, where the Stena temporary was chartered on the GT[Gedser-Travemunde] line.The car in the forefront is Ed's DAFoMatic, in those days a very popular little and cheap car, fully automatic.

Hello Ruud, great to see all the positive feedback on my naval art, I am not sure if anyone realises that I will actually take commisions, so if anybody has any request I could look at it. I do various sizes and a wide range of materials. My speciallity is the work in the style of the 'oranje' example as show on this website. Looking forward hearing from you. regards Ed Bartels
