The Artist Leads The Pack... by 

FEATURED in Going Coastal, Down By The Sea, Painters Universe.Traditional Wooden Boats, California Love

This work is unashamedly a self portrait of this artist doing his other love sailing. As you will note I placed myself very dramatically in the lead, artists of course have this advantage and license… it is placed off Dana Point Ca., where this kind of racing goes on all the time along with surfing. I hope you like it…

Watercolor, painted on 140lb cold press Aquarelle paper, with Grumacher premium W/C paints and Russian Sable brushes. I used a detailed sketch, wet on wet technique with drybrush highlights.

I am at heart a sailor, a sailor who loves to paint the sea, its moods and shifting colors. Also, there is a keen interest in the history of ships and the sailors that have travelled far distances or perished in a dramatic moment of action, in a sea in turmoil. This influence is evident in dramatic watercolors such as “The Gypsy
Moth IV” fully caught in the teeth of a gale off Cape Horn or “Red Flag Day” at the San Clemente Pier.
