Just took this off my easel - calling it done. I've been in quite a slump lately so to me getting this finished was a breakthrough for me.

The USS Slater is a Destroyer Escort, a "DE" from World War Two. She's now a museum ship near Albany, NY (on the Hudson River). I've pictured her here on the hunt at dawn.

I rather like this - and I'm not a 'ship' person tho I have lived reasonably close to the sea all my life!
I particularly like your sky and sea - two difficult areas to paint!

Glad you got it finished Thomas, this is a nice piece. I like the choppy sea and your detail on the ship. Well done
Steve.
