Re Ferries/ Clansman at Barra:

The print has just arrived …
I am speechless … just as well I am typing!

I know it would be nice, but I am totally blown away, it is fantastic.

It is already on show sitting on my colleague’s desk, fortunately for her she is not at work today, it is causing quite a stir in the office, as you can imagine.

Yours, in awe, Tess (address supplied)

Yachting World, the premier sailing magazine have commissioned Gordon Frickers 5 times to produce the Rolex Swan European Regatta Yachting World Prize.

The creative process:

All clients are given a clear idea of what to expect from the artist and what he expects from them.
A brief is established and confirmed in writing.
Where appropriate a contract is issued.

Ideas are discussed.
Next, research is undertaken, sometimes with location visits, sketches and photographs and certainly sketches are evolved.

The first sketches are agreed.
The painting is then laid out.
At this time the second payment will be due.

I also understand rush, pressure and don’t panic.

Gordon Frickers has a unique record of delivering very fast when necessary.

  • For the Yachting World prize, winning boat painted and picture presented on the same day at the Royal Yacht Squadron.
  • The Virgin Atlantic Challenge 2, painting completed almost as quickly as the Atlantic crossing was made.
  • Yamaha had a major oil painting produced and delivered in 4 weeks, for their President’s boardroom in Japan.

The mystery of paintings

Hazlerigg (a Moody 31), Commissioned as a Christmas SurpriseFew things make a home or offices look more stylish than very good paintings.
The rooms are given uplift.

People notice the aura without their even looking at the paintings.

Paintings convey authority and integrity to the rooms in a way which no other furnishings can, challenging the imagination of all who see them.

Fine paintings arouse conversations and give pleasure and value every time you are near them.

Ask for advice from Gordon Frickers Fine Art,


Watercolour or Oil Painting?

Oils are the classic, durable medium.

Watercolours today vary hugely in quality: we only use the best available paints and papers.

One of the reasons Gordon Frickers work so rarely appears at auctions is most become family & company heirlooms.


A M Brown comments:
Firstly I have to say that I feel privileged to hold them.
They feel immensely precious, and I feel being with the originals rather overwhelming


Clive . R. King wrote (of King of Hearts): “It is already giving me great pleasure and reminds me to make more time available for the joy of sailing” – and Clive King commissioned a second painting, of his next boat.

Gordon Frickers uses mostly Winsor and Newton and Daler Rowney professional colours.
In museums and galleries, with good reason, they represent most of the world famous pictures.
For people who appreciate the best, this is it.


If we can be of further assistance, don’t hesitate to e mail or phone to ask.
