Before I opened this I knew I was going to like it :clap: How weird is that..

I like it very much...I think what is particularly appealing is your colour choices, which work very well together.

Great design. Nice variety to shapes and textures. Looks a little like a sculpture.

Oh yeah, that works nicely..are you keeping it for yourself?

The triad of secondary colours is really effective in this piece. The broad white ground surrounding suggests a figure or an object. And the straight lines give it a mechanical vibe. So I saw a suggestion of a truck and wondered why the title was about the ocean.

Then I had to look up charabanc, and found out just how effective this piece is! Well done.

I love this very much! So well balanced, bold and very unique!

Hi Katie - I'm hoping it'll sell:)
Glad you find it effective Rick - when I painted it I could see ocean spray, deck chairs and an old steam driven vehicle :) A peculiarly English word I think, or at least I've only ever heard it used by the English and quite old fashioned now too. I shall endeavour to bring it back hahaha
Thanks Chaya

It's one of your best works and the border around it really sets it off to perfection!!!
