Richard Lane strives for absolute accuracy in his paintings. Extensive research goes into each work of art, as he studies ship models, photographs from museum archives, and blue prints of boats to most accurately represent his subjects. Lane also builds wooden ship models from scratch, so that he can better and further understand the construction and the mechanics of ships and their rigs. Richard is a member of the “Ship Model Society of New Jersey”.
