Rescue

This afternoon, a Breaches Bouy rescue, and for those who don't like ships, I took a photo as it was.

Thank you all for commenting. I've just had a quick count , and give or take mistakes in my maths. This is the 67th painting this year.

Very nice Jim! Your productivity amazes me! It takes me months to complete a painting. I'm lucky to complete 5 or 6 a year.

Re: Rescue

Thanks Jim. In fact I had quite a barren period earlier last year, almost three months with only a couple of paintings. I had been working on illustrations for a book 'Liberties War' and had sent the originals to the US for exhibition later in the year 'Royal Mail' sent them to Spain!. Then lost track of them for several weeks
However it all came out OK in the end, I was invited to the Book Launch/Exhibition at the American Merchant Marine Academy at NY
My son and I had a high old time, I was in my element surrounded by all things Nautical and like minded people.
My output is because of the way I paint, and I think I am reasonably good at drawing. I think of something, research it, if it is 'real' I look for reference pic of the location, weather. It's usually a ship. So try to get pics of it or same class. The time is also important as ships change almost every time they dock. I rarely do studies. I know what I want, draw it, and colour it in. Usually all done in less than two days. Most paintings are done in an afternoon. I suppose you could say I paint using the 'instinct' style!. 'If it looks right, it probably is right' seems to work for me.
Happy New Year, and 'Mair Power tae yer Elbie (elbow)’ as we say in Scotland
Jim
