So sorry to hear about your dad Neil. I understand as my mum passed one year ago this past December. Even if expected it still knocks the stuffing out of you. Glad to see you back, and happy this provides some inspiration for you.  :-*

Looking forward to seeing your rendition.  :clap:

Neil my sincere condolences on the passing of your Dad, it is never easy to lose a loved one. However, throw yourself into your artwork for it is really very therapeutic and helps you to focus on something else.  Looking so forward to seeing more of your work soon.

Beautifully done Neil, excellent colourings. I like how you relocated the boat. The only rust I see is washed away in the colour of the water.  O0
