The painting shows the topsail schooner Enterprize running before a fresh breeze with all squares set as she sails along the Victorian coast
My interest in Enterprize has come about through my regular volunteering as a crew member on the ship. The reference for this painting was from photos during a trip where I was a crew member sailing from Port Welshpool to Melbourne, including photos from another crew member, Andrew. MacGregor.
Further details and specifications on Enterprize can be found on the Enterprize Ship Trust website.
