Welcome to Paintings by Derek Blois

Paintings in acrylics, oils and watercolours as originals and
as prints

Hi, my name is Derek Blois and welcome to my website showcasing my artwork.

Here you will find original paintings and quality prints of maritime, ships, boats, aircraft, buildings and other subjects available for purchase. Most of the work I produce is through commissions so many original paintings on this website are already listed as ‘Sold’, but high quality giclee prints or digital prints are available on much of the work.

If you find there is nothing on the site to meet your needs, there may well be something here to inspire you to commission a painting for yourself or as a gift to someone else. It could be a ship you serve on or have served on, or a plane or helicopter you have flown or have an interest in. It could be a tall sailing ship or a small yacht or it could be your home or your street. Even wall murals can be commissioned and portraits are also available. Paintings can be created at a size to meet your requirements.


For commissions, just get in touch by phone or email to chat it through. There are no up-front costs and no purchase until you are completely satisfied. Costs for originals start from around £200 for an 8 x 12 inch and I can usually work to your budget. All prices for originals on this site are marked as POA (Price on Application), so please get in touch by phone or email to enquire about a price or to chat anything through with no obligation.

Please have a look through the site and remember that more paintings will be added as they are completed.
