The old fishing boat


I like this, Mia. Very well done.

Lovely Mia.

Really lovely Mia and interesting story too

Beautifully painted Mia.

This is rather majestic Mia. I love the way you have painted the sea, especially the surf around the the boat.

A charming picture, Mia.

Full of movement and vigor Mia.

Old in style but no less lovely Mia. I can hear the seagulls. No less effective for it's simplicity.

A super old wooden sailing craft Mia, and very crisply drawn.

Thank you all very much for your nice and positive comments.

Beautifully done Mia.

Thank you very much, Tessa.

Beautiful Mia.

Thank you so much Carole and Fiona. I appreciate your comments very much.

Hang on Studio Wall

A pen and wash I made a time ago for my youngest daughter to decorate her living room. It is of a replica of the old fishing boats they used before there was a harbour in Blankenberge (Belgian coast). The boats had no keel so they had to be dragged on the beach. The replica is made by some volunteers and is still in use for tourist trips at sea. Size 40x50cm. All comments are very welcome :) Mia.
