Yet another piece of amazing artwork from yourself Fred  :)

Do you do it as just a hobby or on a commercial basis ?

Regards, Dan.
Photos / Information, I nearly have them all !

Thank You Gentlemen, very encouraging.
Dan, I only paint as a hobby, they are usually claimed by friends and family as 'birthday presents' for somone or other so they tell me.
I spent six happy months in the Marinia and this scene shows her berth in the Dockyard. Six months holiday in Bermuda and paid off with a hundred pounds at the end of it! Wish I could do it again.
Cheers,   Fred

To Mike and Andy,
Thanks Guys,  I'm afraid the pics don't reproduce too well on the Forum. Probably  down to me,
Cheers,  Fred.
