Monday, October 27th, 2008

Kim Stephens died before he could enjoy his painting as shown on http://www.frickers.co.uk/marine-art/kim_stephens.html.

Morwhenna commissioned me saying they had been meaning to commission a
painting. Kim had died, she would like to carry out his wish.

This charming and very unusual marine painting of a Dart class cat, a watercolour, this week end caused a  friend of many years to get in touch.

Monaco Yacht Show, day 3

Friday, September 25th, 2009

At the Monaco Yacht Show 2009, Port Hercule, Monte Carlo, this was to be my first full working day in the world of superyachts, , meeting super yacht people, excluding the 4 commissions last year.

These remarkable people rapidly changed my perspective of the super yacht world.pass_1_wp.JPG

Marine painting progress and a super yacht dilema

Saturday, January 9th, 2010

Marine art has occupied much of my time over the past few days while I gradually develop a group of new marine paintings. I’ll tell more of the others over the next few days.

By biggest concern is for the Porto Fino super yacht scene which will show superyachts off Porto Fino at dusk.  Porto_Fino_2_IMG_6737_wp.jpgThe sketch here show the basic design.

It’s great to work on a delightful warm evening super yacht scene while outside we have – 4 C, steady snow falling and 2 inches ( 50 cms) of solid compacted ice on the hill into Itzac
