Thank you Yorky, I'm thinking around Airborne lifeboats and Warwicks at the moment , might come to nothing , but that is usually how I start a painting. In the meantime I'm about to start a battleship in a floating dock

Two nice paintings Jim - you put me to shame with that output rate!

Hi Neil, London was 03 and Daring 09. I have a thing about Battleship just now, did 3 w/c and the large acrylic of the Dave since this time last week.
My wife does Quilting and Embroidery/Textile art, so I 'get away' with painting when I want, within reason.
regards Jim

Pretty nice work on this pair Jim. Really like the sea that you have with the London.

Wonderful work Jim. I like the domestic aspects of these two paintings.
