A vessel in the harbour; Travel sketchbook in Sicilia - watercolor pain. Paul Bardot L'aquarelle En Voyage.
This impressive vessel, crowned by a big helicopter platform, it is one among many ships named «Olympic Commander», a line of special purpose off-shore vessels, designed to work in rough weather in the North sea…
But the purpose of this ship is no longer for heavy work nowadays: it's rented by a private company to the Frontex european coalition, wich is monitoring the rescue operation for migrants people in emergency situation in the mediteranean sea.
Two days after the painting, this vessel was rescuing 88 migrants within Italian water… But these kind of operation are really expensive with a such oversized boat: it's because european armys don't have enough vessels for this kind of mission, sadly…

This painting is made with high quality pigments (Sennelier), and Sépia China ink on a 325gr/m2 Hahnemühle paper.

- Warning : watercolor is fragile ! -

In order to protect it with a good frame, I can make all the package wich include:
The painting signed, locked on a hard carton, in a ivory color carton box frame (thickness 2mm), 2mm glass window, and wooden frame naturally saturated by olive oil.
