Yacht passing the Needles


Excellent painting and composition.

Love it - did you wave to Robert in the process?

Awesome painting, great movement

Love the life in this

A dramatic scene. Love the water and sharp shadow on the sail. She’ll need to change tack soon ..... Alum Bay and the cliffs not far off!

Thank you so much Michael. My thinking is they are actually going to bear away and come into the Solent on a run, the spinnaker is just going up.

Thank you everyone, much appreciated.

What a superb marine painting, full of energy and movement

Hang on Studio Wall

Today’s painting is an acrylic 90 x 60cm, canvas. Yacht passing the needles. This one is for the Seaview Gallery on the Isle of Wight. I used Golden Open acrylics on canvas with a golden ground to hold the wateriness of my washes.
