acrylc on canvas 20" x 16"

Considering using this as an underpainting for an oil. Figures tho - harder
than ships. Tried making use of the whole canvas for the figure, it gives a
different energy - the general notion behind this painting was that the
blokes are caught up in the game while the girls use things as social
events and a chance to put the world to rights [ based only on when my
three sisters and I hang out tho ].

Still pondering upon wither this one is finished or not.
