Sea Hawk

I have finally started this commission I have had from before Christmas. There is no rush for it fortunately.
Today I have completed the under painting. Can you see what it is yet? It is actually a Westerly Sea Hawk a very nice yacht, very seaworthy with a high freeboard and centre cockpit. This painting will take longer than usual as there is quite a lot of detail. I obviously cant put it all in but if I miss a piece of rigging or put something in the wrong place it will be noticeable. You can see I changed the figure on the back. The under painting was done in Alkyd oils to speed up the process. I will do the over painting in normal oils.

Just time now to put out my moms rubbish and then off to the gym.
