Slow Start to the Morning

Title: Slow Start to the Morning
Description: 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.

Artist Biography:

Living next to the sea and close to the New Forest, I get plenty of chances to paint all my favourites the ocean and woodlands.
I consider myself an illustrator more than an artist, as I love to get in to all those little details that I feel I just hate to leave out. My favorite brush at the moment only has about three hairs left but it's the finest brush I have ever owned and with it I can do such minute little details.
At the same time, I love big canvases to, something with a little more presence to it, statement pieces that make a wall look small!
Oh paintbrushes in hand, the world is my oyster!
