Many distinguished people and renowned companies have chosen Frickers paintings as you can discover by reading my illustrated résumée. This painting
To put it mildly, it is very unusual for several reasons, not least to see a painting of the Royal family at play.
It is very unlikely I will paint again on location at a major regatta.
Prince Phillip in particular has made a considerable contribution to Cowes week, not only its’ ambience, also its’ organization.
Hence this beautifully executed painting of Royalty relaxing with Friends, Cowes Week Regatta, “Yeoman XXVIII” at that time owned by the Aisher family racing with Prince Phillip at the helm.
Cowes Week is THE major Regatta of the British summer
seen here on a typical British summer’s day!
Cowes Week has been the world’s premier regatta since long before the Schooner “America” raced there and won the cup now the most famous trophy in sailing and known as The America’s Cup.
This is a previously un-published painting, created on location during the race.
More than a good ‘party trick’ to amaze onlookers and a few people this painting was created as one of a series at the invitation of Paul Bertie of Ocean World West Cowes.
M. Bertie who saw some of my work displayed at Queen Anne’s Battery Marina, Plymouth, asked me to visit and watch Cowes Week and to sketch what ever appealed to me.
From his favourite study, this one, he commissioned a 20″ x 32″ version of this study painted for his office.
Like the man said, … souvenirs of a great week, a typical English summer day, and a fine spirited painting.
