This is an impressive painting of Queen Mary, looking forward to seeing your QE2 painting when it is finished.

This is probably the most beautiful painting I have ever seen of the original Queen Mary. Looking forward to seeing your one of the QE2.

Extremely good - and I discovered the full resolution preview feature on the website as well... :)

Very impressive, I am about to start a painting of the Queen Mary myself and if it turns out as good as yours I'll be very pleased!

Hi Lads,
Thank you very much for your comments. This is my first oil painting as I previously worked in acrylics but found I could not attain the desired look in that medium. I will be completing the qe2 painting once I have finished building my beloved qe1 and I will post then. In the mean time i have included a couple of other pieces I have been working on which will be completed in due course.
Alan I never knew you painted, I would love to see your work. Looks like we have a bit in common between the model building and the painting.

Hi James,

Your RMS Queen Mary Is simply superb!
The light catches her so well - she looks very real.
Thanks so much for showing it to us.

Hi James, I use to do a bit of modelling (No, not that kind!!) but I have all but given it up to concentrate on painting now. Your other paintings are equally as impressive as the Queen Mary :)

Hi Alan,
thanks, glad you like them. Here was me thinking you were really naomi campbell...lol.
I can see why you chose one, i find it hard to balance the two but i would not be happy without both which can get frustrating.
I would like to see some of you paintings and models if you have the time?

Hi Alan,
you are very good sir, how long have you been painting? I like your style, almost impressionist with and extremely balanced composition. The ships are perfect in sillouette and detail. Well done. What is you medium?

Thanks for your kind comments, I started painting around 10 years ago now, using oil paints. I have some acrylic paints I use sometimes for the underpainting , they are perfect for that because they dry so quickly. How long have you been painting, and how long does it take you to complete a picture?

Absolutely stunning piece James.  Nice to see that it is available as a print in various formats.  You've captured the power and beauty of the ship and Cunard should consider having it on display onboard QM2 or for sale in the bookstore.

Hi Alan,
Well you can tell alan, definatly alot of experience gone into your work well done. I have been painting for about 15 years. I started with acrylic and did some nice work with it bu my imagination out grew the paint hence the move to oils. That painting took two weeks but most of that is drying time. Painting time is 8 hour to complete. I would do the sky and ocean first, let dry for 4 days, draw the ship, paint the base colors, shading ect, let dry for 4 days. Then i would detail such as windows ect...... and let dry for fours days. Then final detailing and clean up. I am looking forward to seeing your queen mary now. Just working on my qe1 at the moment. Airfix should have put in the window details and i am going to need filler for this one i think, wish me luck.

Hi Highlander,
Thanks a million, i do admit i caught the power of the queen very well and in a realistic environment too. So many artists are afraid to go dark but i embrace it. I could only dream of selling on qm2 but then again thats what makes life worth living.
