Paint Me A Ship is a unique, luxurious, full-colour publication intended for readers interested in marine art and the history it captures.
In Part I there are 30 major new paintings completed since the publication of my first book, Windjammers – The Final Story, each with historical and artistic notes. I have also includes a chapter with insights and practical information for how to capture the sea, sky and weather conditions so that a painted ship truly looks like a ship, shared from a lifetime of painting.
In Part II I have gathered together outstanding examples of contemporary marine paintings, models and scrimshaw, created by members of the Australian Society of Marine Artists. The book celebrates the 20th anniversary of the Society and includes over 70 works I considers to be equal to the world’s best.
