please define starboard for me, it’s a nautical term right?

thanks.

starboard:

The right-hand side of a ship or aircraft as one faces forward.

bealobo - Well, looks to me like you’re getting pretty comfortable with the tablet. :slight_smile: I like the impressionisic treatment of the water and I like the lighting on the foreground.

Salamander – beautiful style, and I just saw what you meant by “can’t get these damned avatars out of my mind”. Who’s face is that on the figurehead ?
