Setting Sail in Penarth

By pure chance, I came across a striking photograph of the Penarth Yacht Club getting ready for action and the image immediately struck a cord with me. It was taken on a sunny Autumn morning by friends of mine who live in Penarth and I was delighted when they gave me permission to use it as a reference for a painting. Every painting presents a challenge and this one was no exception but in the end, I guess the combination of experience and technique has resulted in a painting I’m proud to add to my collection.

Following a short spell after the completion of the original painting, I decided to refresh the sky by introducing a brighter and more dramatic skyline – more in keeping with the original image.
