Nearly home.


You have painted the surf beautifully Paul. It has such strong movement and I like the distant buildings.

Very topical Paul, super surf.

You have caught the storm so well Paul, love the way you have got the waves coming up the side of the boat. A brilliant painting.

Excellent stormy sea.

Thank you Carole, Fiona, Linda and Stephen for your kind comments, they are very much appreciated.

It’s very captivating, Paul, and makes you want to linger around all the rigging. Obviously not a sheltered harbour.

Excellent Paul, great sea.

Great movement here Paul, those waves look so stormy.

Such fine detail and the surf is realistic.. amazing work Paul!

Many thanks for you comment, Ron, Richard,Marjorie and Nandhini, they are very much appreciated.

Great combination of movement and detail, Paul. With Ciara howling around the house even more impressing.

Where's the sea sick tablets. Another good one Paul.

Gosh, this is lovely Paul. I love the colour of the boat and the energy of the waves buffeting it around. Really good....

Many thanks Reglho, Bill and Dorothea for you very kind comments.

Bet they will be pleased Paul, looks rough out there. Good painting!

A4 watercolour. Fishing boat returning home during a storm. Brave men out in all weather, was thinking of this in the current weather conditions we are having, I get sick on the duck pond.
