hey mike , they vary in size this one is 20" by 15" thats the painting itself some are smaller and also the guy who painted them has a postcard collection that you can buy from the internet
these paintings have been painted for a private buyer so if you want a print i can sort it out for you
regards
peter  :)

I painted the picture for ex Chief engineer,now retired---- he was in Ionia when brand new, and picture depicts her arriving off Gravesend from her builders Henry Scarr at Hessle in 1960-- she is now lying semi derelict in the Medway I believe
