Ahoy,

Here a shot, from Ed's paintings, I think this is a so called Fore-Castle of a ship or is it called Prow?
Anyway it's "misty"!
One of our seagoing members will correct me if I am wrong, but I think that it was a requirement in the past to ring the ship's bell when anchored in fog. Is this still the rule today?
In any event the paintings and drawings are splendid.

Ahoy,
Here a drawing dated 1975 by Ed,she was made at Travemunde, where the Stena temporary was chartered on the GT[Gedser-Travemunde] line.The car in the forefront is Ed's DAFoMatic, in those days a very popular little and cheap car, fully automatic.

Hello Ruud, great to see all the positive feedback on my naval art, I am not sure if anyone realises that I will actually take commisions, so if anybody has any request I could look at it. I do various sizes and a wide range of materials. My speciallity is the work in the style of the 'oranje' example as show on this website. Looking forward hearing from you. regards Ed Bartels
