The Lady Washington Brig
Original pastel painting of the square-rigged sailing vessel, the Lady Washington, seen at anchor in the Pacific Northwest of the USA. My thanks to Michael Ryan for permission to use his wonderful reference photograph. Image size 13.5" x 19.5" (35cm x 50cm), Panpastels and pastel pencils on Pastelmat board (unframed). The first Lady Washington was a 90-ton brig named after Martha Washington. She was the first American-flagged vessel to round Cape Horn, making landfall in Oregon in 1788. She took part in the fur trade and carried tea and porcelain across the Pacific from China. She was the first US ship to reach Japan, but was lost off the Philippines in 1797. The present Lady Washington is a full scale replica, launched in 1989 and sails up and down the coast of California, Oregon and Washington, offering educational programs.

East Coast Haar
Coming Home is a large square seascape painting of the sea, Seven Sistersâ chalk cliffs and the lighthouse at Eastbourne in East Sussex. It is 40x40x1.5 inches on white deep edge canvas. The sea is very blue and you can see the land fading off into a purple haze in the distance towards Seaford. A single seagull is returning home. This painting was inspired by the many times I have walked along these cliffs from Eastbourne over to Birling Gap. The sea is turquoise near the cliffs where it is affected by the colour of the rocks underneath it and is deeper blue as you go further out. Paint has been used liberally especially on the cliffs to give an idea of the texture. Dripples of white from the base of the cliffs hint at the motion of the sea and the erosion that is occurring because of it. This landscape is a great place to see for miles around over a beautiful sea and one I visited regularly to keep me happy during the covid lockdowns. No frame needed, ready to hang. Dedicated everyone loves to walk and who is active in preserving nature.
An original oil painting on a 16 x 12 inch canvas of a colourful underwater scene with some fish in a barrier reef swimming among the coral. It is painted on all sides so does not require framing but you could frame it if you wish. I has a coat of varnish and can be hung from the canvas.
