British Duchess

A bit of self-indulgence here.A piece of my artwork of this 1958 built BP tanker one of the largest at the time at 42000dwt.
She was scrapped in 1978 as PETROLA 25.

Paul you call it self indulgence, I call it pride in your calling and a generous willingness to share things with other members. I'm no art critic but I can appreciate the effort, time and love that went into your picture. I am amazed at the talents on this site that are beginning to show once one person breaks the ice. I say thanks for sharing and keep 'em coming.
