One from the archives, a boat being re painted and generally sorted out for the season. Won't be long before they are all out of the water for this year. Thought the title was appropriate when it sprung into my head Smile whilst deciding on which photo to upload Smile. Off to Beaulieu this weekend, to look at the 'James Bond' vehicle exhibition plus all those other wonderful vehicles Smile

Thank you all so much for all your C&C's very much appreciated

Thanks for taking the time to look

Hugh

Good title for this partially renovated hull, Hugh: wonderfully saturated colour above and good detail and textures below.

A very bold and carefully crafted composition, a wonderful array of gorgeous blue hues with odd flaking red and yellow, which knocks back the saturation wonderfully.
