These are small watercolour ship portraits executed on Archers 300g coldpress watercolour paper.  I use a quarter sheet Imperial which measures about (370 x 280)mm and once cropped the size is reduced further as suits the image.

I have a large collection of images of British ships prior to 1970 and, with the net, it is not hard to locate images good enough for detail. Provided I have a satisfactory image I can produce these portraits quickly and economically.

If you are interested in commissioning a ship portrait all I need to know is the name of the vessel and the situation in which you want it represented.  This includes roughly the angle  - ( beam on, four points (45º) on the bow etc.), the weather, sea state and the background.  Within limits I can represent ports that I know, or you can supply an image from which I can work.

Once I have the information I will email you a rough sketch and if you are happy with that I will complete the watercolour and send you a good image.

Provided you are happy with the image I will post the painting to you.

Payment can be worked out once I am in contact with you and I do not usually require settlement until you have received the painting.  This is necessary as there is always the chance that a painting will be damaged in the post.

I charge $210NZ for these portraits. (postage not included)

Note.
The images I have here are examples of these portraits.  They all happen to be of ships of the post-WWII era.  I am not confined to this period and can handle anything from the ancient Egyptians to the latest vessels.
