Sun Odyssey 33 "Tofibe" on its moorings at Lawrenny

The painting above was a commission I did last month of a yacht, "Tofibe" (Sun Odyssey 33) on its moorings at Lawrenny.

I haven't done any paintings of boats or ships for while so it was a nice change. I used to do a lot of shipping and coastal paintings and exhibited at boat shows at one time. I have a pretty good working knowledge of boats and rigging. Its a golden rule for me and I think it should be for all artists, "know your subject".

Anyway I think the mad rush of the last few months is over and I can possible have a quieter period before starting to replace my stock of work. In the meantime its painting "cotton white" walls again today.
