Painting has always made me happy. Enjoying being Volunteer Artist-in-Residence at Arlington Court National Trust Devon
Wow, that is interesting! Kind of alarming, where are the pirates? I expect a fab painting now, Ann! :)
I know Judy, I kept looking for Jack Sparrow!...but apparently pirates don't dress as pirates these days.lol. As for a painting of it, I'm already planning and thinking maybe a Turner-esq type style.
What an experience to see one of these boats/ships. Looking at it, one can envision pirates hanging on the ropes and scurrying on the deck. What fun!
Thanks Ann - I kept looking for them that's for sure!
Is this the 'Matthew' built in Bristol? It looks similar if not. A beautiful example of traditional craftsmanship and engineering.
Hi Bella, It could well be the Matthew, it is due to sail from Padstow to Newlyn around the 12th March, so could be making its way down there. I remember when it was built a few years ago now and we saw it sail for the first time up the Bristol Channel, we lived in Portishead at the time.
I saw one of these tall ships while on a cruise this winter. Thanks for reminding me...
There really is something about actually seeing them sailing isn't there Pat....gives me goosebumps!
this must have been quite a view!!!
It was Edgar...such a surprise first thing in the morning!
WOW-you do live in a wonderland. You have to do a painting of this.
Yes Chris, it's sometimes a bit weird here! lol...I'm going to do a painting....hopefully!
Hi CJ, Glad I posted this...everyone seems to have enjoyed seeing it too:)
What a fun sighting. My DH would love it. He loves wooden boats and he loves tall ships. Wow!!! And I thought it was a painting when I first saw it. LOL
Yes it was a great surprise Lynn. I'm going to do a painting - hopefully doing it justice..lol.

Uhhh, that looks almost scary, but I hope you will get a nice oainting out of this :-)
I hope so too Jane....at the moment I have a couple of versions in mind, I'll probably end up doing lots of pencil sketches before I finally settle on something.
Extraordinary boat! It would make a wonderful painting, as would your cute 4 legged friend!Happy Painting.Nora
Hi Nora, yes it is different! I'll be doing a painting before long.
Hmmmm...was it a ghost ship?!?
Haha...yes it might have been - at least it has disappeared today!
Way cool! Did you think you'd been transported back in time without your knowing about it? LOL
Hi Robin, now that would have been weird!...although on the other hand....lol
Ann, how fabulous is that? Love the ship and I would hope you squeeze it into a few paintings! if I can help ease your PF getting lost, shoot me an email! xx
Hi Pat, yes it will appear somewhere, somehow for sure. Thanks so much about PF, if I have a problem I'll let you know. One thing I have had today was an apparent email being sent out from my hotmail...but I didn't send it. Had quite a few comments (thanks everyone who has let me know).
