A marvellous depiction with a very real sea. Brilliantly executed. Welcome to the site.

Very well done...the painting certainly captures the moment. A great vessel with a wonderful history. Halifax, here in Nova Scotia, was her home port and Farley still lives down the road in Cape Breton.

I like the very real drama you capture in the two paintings you've put up. I like that they tell a story all in a frame.

A fantastic painting of a great little ship, a tribute to her British builders and the crews from Newfoundland and Nova Scotia that manned her during her greatest hours. If you haven't read Farley's book, you should.

Cracking atmosphere and drama in these paintings. Well done. Your lighting and seas are very well executed. Keep it going

It is wonderful,...when you think you have seen every possible way that a seascape could be depicted, along comes yet another master of maritime art.
This is seriously good work, marek sarba, and it is a privilege to view it.

regards, Donald

Thank You.
To much to tow for old “Franklin”, once I found that Red Sea is to narrow if wind will not change, just to much.

You really have got the depiction of the sea down pat, it makes you want to hang on whilst viewing it. Congratulations on some fine work.
