Replace Solid Color with image Pygame

I use this code to create rectangle with solid color on background

def create_image(self):
    image = pygame.transform.scale(pygame.image.load(
        os.path.join('assets', 'ship11.png')), (ship_width, ship_height))
    self.rectangle = pygame.Surface((ship_height, ship_width), pygame.SRCALPHA)
    self.rectangle.fill(pygame.Color('dodgerblue'))

how I can use picture that I load in first line in this function in rectangle that I created

Thanks in advance

Answer

self.rectangle is a pygame.Surface. Use the blit method to draw a source Surface onto a Surface object:

self.rectangle.blit(image, (0, 0))

Function create_image:

def create_image(self):
    image = pygame.transform.scale(pygame.image.load(
        os.path.join('assets', 'ship11.png')), (ship_width, ship_height))
        
    self.rectangle = pygame.Surface((ship_width, ship_height), pygame.SRCALPHA)
        self.rectangle.fill(pygame.Color('dodgerblue'))

    self.rectangle.blit(image, (0, 0))
