Ships that belonged to the Aberdeen ‘White Star’ line were painted in  “Aberdeen Green” with white decks and bottom. They also had a gilded streak and scroll work. Many did their time in the Australian passenger trade. 

The ships painted in the traditional “Aberdeen Green” enjoyed great popularity  all  over  the  world.   

Dale Byhre, ( Canadian 1956 – ), has specialized in depicting both historical and modern ships.  Dale has encompassed a strong appreciation for both ships and the sea, depicting them both with accuracy and reverence.  Dale Byhre’s paintings are recreations of a time and place based on long hours of research and study.  Whether a battleship in action during a critical moment in history or fishing docks on a peaceful morning.  

Dale is an active member of the Federation of Canadian Artists and the American Society of Marine Artists.  Dale’s work is in many private and public collections, including those of the Royal Canadian Navy, the US Naval Academy Museum.

Dale is a full-time artist and lives Cloverdale, B.C. More on Dale Byhre

I search Art History for Beautiful works that may, or may not, have a secondary or unexpected story to tell. I then write short summaries that grow from my research. Art work is so much more when its secrets are exposed
