On, In and Under by BerniePetterson On, In and Under by BerniePetterson

Here is my "new" way of looking at ships and water themes. Were you tired of looking at my little seascapes with a few sailing yachts, a few fishes, and a few oddball elements? Yep, me too. There are all kinds of ways to show ships and yachts and people out on the water.

Like say, this one: The cutaway! Oooh, such a fine way to show the goodies within. Did you want to know what was going on inside of the ship? Well, now you can.

The suggester states, "I just love all the little details and the amazing linework in On, In and Under by ~BerniePetterson! The whole gallery is full of such unique and imaginative things." And I agree! Bernie's gallery is full of masterpieces drawn in Moleskine notebooks! And yes, he's such a creative person that you'll love all his artworks.

Love the details ...
giraffe as mast and cat on the anchor ... waiting for the fish ...
Awesome creativity
Thank you.

It's great when I have the time to pack in all of the little bits for the eye to find.

Usually I'm sprinting and I just have to just dash something out.

I just love all the details :) Thank you for making me smile this morning.

I love the linkage for the rudder.
Thank you.

I think I messed up on the right angle gears in the stern. If the captain turns the wheel to the right, I'm pretty sure the ship will go to the left. I might re-arrange the gear layout when I turn this into a finished painting (which won't be anytime soon, ha ha).

You are correct, currently the wheel acts like a tiller (ships moves opposite to the direction imposed by the wheel). It would be easy to correct this mechanical linkage, though; simply have the gear on the horizontal shaft engage the right-angle gear on the forward edge, instead of the aft edge. There, fixed.

Or not, it's really not a problem. It's a gorgeous whimsical piece either way.

Yes you and I think alike...that was exactly what I was going to do in the final.
Aaannnnnd everyone's happy! Except the captain. That's a bit dangerous....
He's a military man with a big responsibility. You wouldn't want a happy goofball like me in charge of a large vessel. People like me would casually overlook something important and get people hurt.

(one of the best parts of being an artist is that nobody's life hangs in the balance).
I love this one :D
