A slow leap across the Humber.


















During the early 1950's, I often used to travel across the Humber River in England on this ship, the P.S.S. Wingfield Castle.
This picture was painted in acrylics on Bainbridge illustration board (19cm x 29cm).

Nicely done Alan, and welcome to Illustration Friday. I like the color palette you've used here - it looks very cold, wet, and windy on that boat.
