Re: The English East Coast

Going further up the river Thames we see a tall ship in Greenwich,snug in her drydock : the tea-clipper Cutty Sark, built in Scotland in 1869.
I painted her picture 10 years ago, oil on canvas.Here she is in her dock and a pendrawing from the days of yore.

Nice picture, excellent drawing, but I much prefer colour, this looks very cold and bleak. After all it was quite a joyous occasion, Saved from the Scrap man!
