This fishing trawler doesn't exist anymore, she now sits at the bottom of the ocean somewhere. This painting was for my 'cousin-in-law'. The boat belonged to his uncle who passed away a little while ago....so it was very special.
I only had the 2 pic above to work with for reference material. My cousin wanted the boat to be painted as if it was going out to sea. I found this challenging, as I didn't have a pic as to how the actual boat looked from behind....and of course I wanted it to look like the 'Ronda Lene'.
.....under-painting, still trying to get it right
The finished painting
....close-up of the boat.
I found this painting hard....as it was like doing a portrait, because the boat had belonged to someone....it was just not any fishing trawler, it meant something special. Plus, I'm not a 'boat' person....I really don't know much about them....so be gentle you guys out there who are boat enthusiasts, lol
