Oil Paintings with palette knife and brush

Yachts & Commissions

Some of these oil paintings were commissions for yacht owners.
Commissions can be undertaken from your photographs from a trip or visit to the yacht in situ.


As Artist in Residence in Bermuda in 2012 I discovered a colour new to me - phthalo blue.  The pink coral sand reflects light off the seabed in an extraordinary way. I got very excited by the reflected light under a boat's hull - the intensity of it.
I experimented with different ways of putting the oil paint on - palette knife and brush and of course the faithful rag!
