  2. Ship paintings

    I'm 77, so probably about 70 years. I retired in 2006 so I've been able to paint a lot more since then. The last 5 years have been a bit more serious, with exhibitions, book covers and illustrations. I no longer take pics to Galleries, with a view to sales, some don't even look at them., they are more interested in Highland Cattle and abstract. I'm not rich, but we live reasonably comfortably. I sell the odd painting now and then. I'm too old for the hassle of running a business. Here is today's offering. Two Royal Navy Cutters chasing a French Frigate late 18th century. W/C 15" X 11"

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model shipcraft.

The Nautical Research Guild puts on ship modeling seminars, yearly conferences, and juried competitions. We publish books on ship modeling techniques as well as our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, whose pages are full of articles by master ship modelers who show you how they build those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you what details to build.
