The new marine painting of the Alfred Holt Blue Funnel Steamer, last mentioned on this blog on the 7th of February is now complete.
The Blue Funnel steamer Talthybius is not even on the web site yet, sold in less than a month so I’ll show you am few details below.
The Blue Funnel ship Talthybius was painted on speculation as a possible exhibition piece for the proposed one man show at the European Parliament.
The story of this major new painting is emerging elsewhere on this blog…
An offer was made, an offer which I could not refuse by a delightful gentleman who’s emails had me laughing several times,
Now I only have one Blue Flue marine painting and may have to paint another for the show.
Any Ideas for a subject?
I have two ideas, how about you, a favourite ship worth recording in a marine painting?
I guess I had better add another Blue Funnel ship to the growing list of paintings I should get on with.
Next though will be a new version of Trafalgar Dawn, the French perspective and a new painting of the voayage of the French discoverer Laperouse plus I also need examples of new cruise and cargo ships but which to choose?
