Hi Folks, this tall ship is closer to the photo and I like it better than the first one. still arches 140,7x11. same paints.I used pen for the rigging, blue had no black ink, think I will go over with black paint because I dont like the blue. anyway, also the spreaders and yards are too thick but cant do anything about them now.c&c please.

Hi Iroquois,

This looks good so far. I agree with you about changing the rigging to black. If that is a cloud bank behind the green hill, you might want to add some soft gray tones to give it a little bit of shape. I think you could make the shadow from the ship on the dock a little darker.

I like the way you've painted the boat and the water and the distant mountain way in the background.

Nice job on this ship. The water looks deep and great place to take a cruise!
