Emil,

Another beaut! How is the vessel kept upright? Perhaps they are using the rudder to shore her up.

Thanks Stephen, David and Granty.
Template is a single snapshot.

The stability looks a bit fragile. probably it's like you say and granty.

ps: Stephen, for all your good information about painting surfaces ... I'm currently painting on double-primed gesso pannels. In this case, still without a canvas. It runs fine. The colors do not sink. (with canvas on pannels I'll try later).
I am currently working on a job for a group exhibition for a small historic regional ceramics museum in the Swiss mountains. No ships and sea, but historical pottery as a theme.
But, I'm looking forward to taking maritime pictures again.

I like the child just touching the beached monster. The lines of these old wooden boats are just wonderful to look at.

Thanks Ian!

Stephen,
Make two primers on the double gessoground again.

"Lötscher" was in Switzerland a Hafner dynasty in the 19th century.
Production of crockery and tiled stoves.
Now, i try to paint the historical ceramic artifacts on Pannels in a different context. In the countryside and especially in the forest. It's a challenge to paint the forest that I am satisfied. Forest, forest, forest... Ufff!

...i remeber at your painting "Veendam in Hamilton 2010" with the notice: I will NEVER again paint TREES!

Emil,
I have learned to paint trees. Found the book 'How to paint trees.' First think was to find about with photos of all kinds of trees. Getting better!

Ceramic. Why not painting on porcelain and making several colours and then firing... several time? I'd like to have a shot but I think it would take a lifetime to learn it! Delft 'faience' or majolica, great good fun.
