Artist's Description

No26 in a new series of digital paintings of ships and boats of yesteryear.

A digital painting of my vector drawing (not an automated trace) of a Greek Trireme using a sea made up in Gimp and an early morning sky at our house in Romania.
No image may be reproduced, copied, edited, published, or uploaded without my permission.

The early trireme was a development of the penteconter, an ancient warship with a single row of 25 oars on each side, and of the bireme (Greek: διήρης, diērēs), a warship with two banks of oars, probably of Phoenician origin.
