Very moving.

A sad day to see our own Aircraft Carrier sail off https://www.rt.com/uk/369513-hms-illustrious-royal-navy/

A worrying time - I wonder if they feared the Japanese might revisit and take her out as well. Nicely done Jim.

Thank you all for commenting. Not doing much painting just now.

I'm told that the mountains in the back ground are a lot nearer, and should in fact go up to about the level of the central cloud in the painting!.
