I have seen this view in photos before so I thought I'd have a go at painting one. It depicts the tow of the bulker 'Pacific Patriot' from the Clyde to Belfast which she did with the Flying Phantom in 1982
Cheers.... Fred

Such a fine eye for detail and obviously a very steady hand ! Superbe yet again Fred, a lovely piece of artwork, now then, how long did this one take you to paint ?

Regards, Dan.

ps, could I ask you what do you do with all your paintings ? Your house must be like a maritime museum  :D

Thank you Barry, Dan and MTM, actually Dan, I've only got two of my paintings hanging at home and neither of them are tug paintings! However I do have a son who wants them as birthday presents for his friends who seem to have several birthdays a year. Still as long as someone enjoys them I don't mind.  Cheers....Fred
PS  Drawing and painting kept me occupied for about a week

Could you do your art work to order ?? If I was to send you a photo maybe you could use your magic wand - sorry brush - and send me back a great print ?

If you could, kindly send me a pm  ;)
