You capture the atmosphere so well. My Dad was in the Merchant Navy and this painting made me think of him. His time at sea (1944-48) was the happiest time of his life. Thanks for awaking treasured memories.

I agree with DaneeCastillo about the detail, particularly in the sea, superstructure and rigging.

Actually, I prefer older ships to modern slab-sided ferries and liners. As a general hint to finding pictures of the sorts of things I'm talking about (not warships), look for anything called PS (Paddle Steamer), RMS (Royal Mail Ship, probably only British registry), SS (Steam Ship) or TS (Turbine Steamer). Note that an RMS may also be any of the other 3 cited categories. Oh yes and if they have a prefix, sailing ships will be SV (Sail{ing} Vessel).

thanks for those ideas - I'll try them ... it's not easy to find inspiring photo (of old steamer) to copy ... and I need a lot of them ;) have a nice day :)

Any time and thanks, you too.

With the note that they'll be mostly West of Scotland and Irish Sea companies and vessels, I could give you some ship and company names, and websites to try for reference photos.
