    victim of the reef

    Before good maps and Sat Nav etc, the coral reefs around various equatorial landmasses proved to be a menace to the old sailing boats of that time,here's my vision of what it must have looked like next day after a ship was driven onto the reef,during a storm....Just a figment of my imagination,no references used....Actually I was best pleased with the Island which came out rather well I thought,the rest is a bit Iffy,in fact I could have done this very differently,but I have been very busy these last two days,doing certain jobs that have been on hold for a bit tooooooo long, if you know what I mean(Tooo busy Painting),lol...Hope you like the picture.....Jack.

    This is really nice. There is somethng about the sky that seems to be a little strange, but the water, mountain, and ship are truely fantastic.

    OH no the captains been at the rum again
    Wonderful storytelling quality to this work, the background island in the mist looks volcanic and the detail in the ship and water are incredible
