View Full Version : Frigate drys her sails

This frigate has sailed in very foul weather . Here in a safe tropical anchorage she unfurls her sails to dry out. A watering party makes for shore to search for fresh water springs.

12"x 18" acrylic on masonite.

Another lovely piece JFD.
Your paintings make me think of adventure and I enjoy wondering what stories they come with.

Fabulous detail and color on the frigate. I would love to see this full size. I really enjoy the clouds and sky as well. The only thing I would suggest is to heighten and lengthen the inlet to pull the viewers eyes into the center of the picture more. Very good job though overall.

Beautiful work on the frigate, the sails and rigging are especially well done. The old square riggers were artworks themselves. Very nice work.
