Return to Malta

HMS Illustrious in Malta 2012.

A superb painting of a great ship and a great place.

Really good Timothy

Love this Timothy, the more detailed picture of the ship against the looser buildings works so well....

Superb handling of the background Timothy and I love the touches of details in the helicopter and ship.

Thanks for the feedback; much appreciated

Beautiful colours Tim. I like the mix and tension between scenic history and metallic power.

Hang on Studio Wall
