The painting is about finished now, it needs to dry before I can do any more. The subject is Andrew Dryburgh, born in 1849 and died in 1929. He was a seaman and his claim to fame is that he was the ship's carpenter on the maiden voyage of the "Cutty Sark". He travelled around the world and lived for a time in Canada. He finally came home to Scotland and was the last harbourmaster of the, then, important harbour at Dysart in Fife.
