Yes. Lizzie I have to agree with you there. Excellent work Frans, did it take you long? There seems to be a fair bit of detail there, Is it oil on Canvas or Arcrylic on Canvas, can't really tell.
Lizzie I also like your picture of the Himalaya nice work,
Lizzie, Bradley, I try to explane how I work, it is oil on linen, or linen with cotton,it is all wet in wet , so if I start top left-hand corner I make first the sky and all what is in it like masts,pipes, ropes etc. when the sky is dry it make it more difficult because it likes if I paint on sandpaper. second ,I make the ships from above till the hull (???) and at last I make the sea, sometimes in consultation with the custumer, storming or sunnyday
thanks, regards and best wishes for 2009
