Slow Start to the Morning
I love these old Thames Barges, they may be flat bottomed but they are so graceful in the water. This one was on a layover at Keyhaven on her way for a refurb further down the coast, so my daughter and I paddle-boarded out to take hundreds of photos. She didn't have a mast or sails so I had to find references for them elsewhere. She also had no bowsprit which I think probably means she was racing since the 1960s when they were deemed unbalancing and unsafe! She was just so beautiful that I had painted her fully refurbished and graceful in the water, so tranquil and gentle. This is an acrylic canvas, painted around the wrap, measuring 30" x 23" which really makes it a really impressive painting on the wall.
