Hang on Studio Wall

24x32cm watercolour painting on 200 gsm paper . Two old whaling ships the nearest is Petrel and the other is Viola . Viola has been recovered and brought back to Hull where she served as a armed steam trawler in WW11. Petrel is still at Gritviken in South Georgia. The area is a museum and is now quite a wildlife haven with seals , penguins etc .
