Painting the rigging with a brush on canvas sounds very hard!

Legrandzilla, thanks for the positive feedback, painting rigging is always a bit tricky, I use a method of taking a design curve and a ruler, both are clear plastic, I will then place a thin amount of masking tape at both ends on one side and lay on the canvas and use these as a rigging painting guide, this will work but it takes some getting used too, have a good week...

That's amazing. Bonus points for being oil on canvas rather than digital. Beautiful.

Thank you much for the positive reply, I would like to paint something like this in Adobe Illustrator, and do do a fair amount of digital work for graphic design ( Bachelors degree being worked on), however, I would rather oil or water color paint seascapes and old ships, all the time, have a good week...

I love the way you've painted the waves, they look like they're really flowing, even viewed as a thumbnail.

Thank you much for the positive reply, water is a bit tricky to paint and one of theses days painting water may not seem so difficult to produce, the challenge is always there, have a good week...

Thank you much, I must be crazy to want to paint what seems like the hardest subject in the world to try and get at least close to right...
