I have painted this subject before, so I have painted it again to see if I could go about it in a different way. I think it has worked out a better painting than the first attempt. This scene is in Norwich where my Son lives. we went for a walk to see if there were any subjects that I fancied painting. I spotted this one with another possible subject for which I have already painted it.

The Spritsail Barge Ena. She was built in 1906 and bought for £875. Then another £232 fitting her out. There is a lot written about her but this blog is about painting and not too much facts.

Another Thames Barge. It`s called "the Tollesbury". I want to explaine to all Boat experts that I hardly know anything about Barges or any boats come to that. And I paint these lovely Barges the way I want to paint them, and not with all the technical bits and pieces. I do apologize to those who get upset because I haven`t put this and that what should be there.

Another Thames Barge. I never tire of painting these beautiful Barges. This one I think is called The May. It was acquired by Tate and Lyle the Sugar people. They purchased it in 1964. There is another barge that I want`to paint soon.

Sailor getting his Boat ready was mainly done from memory. (What did I hear you say, it looks like it?)
