This serene picture by Scott Cameron shows a ship
leaving New Castle. The 'red ensign' indicates that it is a British merchant vessel.
As described in his
gallery listing "Cameron paints the simple elegance of the America's Cup races,
serene coastal marsh scenes, timeless landscape vistas and historic steamboats in a style
reminiscent of the era in which they reigned.
An admirer of Andrew Wyeth and the Brandywine School of painters,
Scott has combined the detail and quiet stillness of that School in his landscapes with the
Luminist School's sense of light glowing from within. A soft gentle atmosphere seems to
fall over each scene adding to the peacefulness of the setting, and a sense of a time gone by. "
