Working Luzzu in Xlendi
This is my favourite luzzu to paint, made years ago by her owner, she is one of the last wooden boats to operate out of Xlendi. Fishing is her owners' only occupation, very unusual now on Malta, as most fish only part time at night. Difficult to get the lines correct without smudging, I had to paint the undercoat in acrylics as it needed to dry before the next lines were applied. I hope it doesn't look too laboured, as it is a true labour of love, ready for an exhibition in Malta.
