This rather small ( 7 in. X 12 in. ) study may lead to a larger more detailed work in future. For now it serves as a means to revive an interest in two dimensional art after a most enjoyable sortie in model building.
A GOOD NORTH WIND SPRUNG UP BEHIND:
The Albatross did follow'
And every day, for food or play,
Came to the mariners' hollo!
In mist or cloud, on mast or shroud,
It perched for vespers nine;
Whiles all the night,
through fog-smoke white,
Glimmered the white moon-shine
