Thank you Chris and Spencer for taking the time to look and comment.

Excellent, Paul!

I love the look of these old wooden boats Dixie. Another lovely painting. You have the shape spot on.

Thank you Anne and Tessa for you kind comments. As you probably know I love painting boats and the challenge of the shape is one of the things that attracts me to drawing and painting them .

You paint boats very well!

Christine, Neil and Heather thank you for your kind comments.

Thank you Mia , I appreciate that you took the time to look and comment.

This is lovely Paul, beautifully painted

I share your love of old boats Paul & Lady Luck is a particularly good one.

Thank you Brian , they do have a beautiful look to them I think it’s the lines and shape the hulls take.

A really lovely painting, love the mix of warm and cool colours.

Thank you Valerie you comment is really appreciated.

Hang on Studio Wall

A4 watercolour of a clinker built fishing boats of the style that was used on the Kent coast , Hastings, Deal etc. The original boats were sail powered and later engines were added or were built as a combination, used the sails for drifting as it gave steerage way . Some are used until a few years ago . This is a fictional scene but based on actual scenes I named the boat so as not to use any identification or registration marks . Touch boats used by tough men in all weathers.
