This is 24" x 36" Acrylic on canvas. I finally figured out how to make a frame! This took quite a while to finish as I'm not used to working on a painting this big.
Lots of fun to do the waves and the ocean... I'm hoping to do more ocean scenes and learn how to paint waves better.

 :not_worthy:   Brilliant piece John!  :congrats:
I used to love drawing these big ships but never managed to pluck up the courage to give one a go in paint.  :eyesclosed:   Love it!  :clap: :clap: :clap:
Cheers, Val

 :clap: :clap: :clap: Great art work, John!  What an accomplishment to paint ships and ocean waves, clouds and skies!  Do more sea paintings and really work on the techniques of sky and water, for example.  I did 4 or 6 in a row to get the hang of mixing sea colors, doing waves, cloud formations, etc.  Lots of satisfaction!
