Fifies off Wick

"Fifies off Wick" - watercolour - 35 x 51 cm

Having finished a few smaller paintings of the fishing boats, I felt confident enough to tackle something larger. This was the commissioned painting that all the preparatory work had been leading up to.

  2. Goor Evening Keith!... These "fifies" under full sail... join the other "fleets" of fine water colour moments that you have generously shared with us!

    Your powerful composition here captures a most believable feeling of wind... spray and salt air! Another gem Keith!

    Good Painting!
    Warmest regards,
    Bruce

    1. Good Morning Bruce. I'm glad you've enjoyed sailing with me! Doing a series of paintings like this certainly helped to get a feel for the subject.

      All the best,
      Keith

  3. This is so good Keith. The movement in the water is amazing. Lack of time has kept me away so I've missed the others ... I'll look back at them. Impressive painting, as always.
