Portrait of a Ship

Amerigo Vespucci training shipI was trying to get the whole tall ship in a picture, when I saw that someone was using other techniques to do it.The painter was not too far from completing his work.Amerigo Vespucci training shipWhich, as marine paintings go, I find not bad at all.

Yes, I agree, pretty good. Most paintings like these I would normally call a "croûte", not this. Well done both of you!
