Racing yachts, Swans in full flight.

Finished this week, a spirited marine painting of Nautor Swan yachts racing in classic style.

This fine example of marine painting (36″ x 28″)  is intended to be reserved as an exhibition piece and be offered for a modest £1,200.00; unless some one before then, makes me an offer I can’t refuse!Swans__014.04.10_IMG_7219_d.jpg

Antibes Yacht Show, opening the Cote d'Azur 2010 nautical season

Super yachts ~ In my previous blog I gave you a youtube video link to the Antibes Yacht Show, April 8th, 2010 http://www.antibesyachtshow.com/intro.asp?lang=EN

Just got back from the Antibes Yacht Show, tired and hungry, after 7 hours on the road, here begins my report.

My objectives were to look for subjects and possible commands for marine painting, assemble information for possible articles and meet interesting people maybe making new friends.

Here is my first impression, the evening I arrived.Antibes_YS_2_IMG_7166_d.jpg

Busy in the studio today.

I have some ideas to sketch re the possible marine commission I mentioned yesterday, but first, Admiral Nelson and super yachts.  Superyacht_sketches_IMG_6681_wp.jpg

I have several marine paintings in advance planning at present and several being sketched out including this one intended to be of a big superyacht (motor), with other yachts at dusk in Porto Fino but which yachts?

Want to nominate suitable superyachts?

Monaco Yacht Show, day 4, more adventures

Final day of the Monaco Yacht Show, the world’s foremost exhibition for Superyachts. I have a plan of action…

I won’t have time for marine painting, or to look for possible commissions. I’ll not even have much time to take photographs.Masthead_wp.jpg

My new brochure (ask for a copy or down load free from www.frickers.co.uk home page) is being very well received.

I have been amused to have several people say, wow, collector’s item!

Amused because there were a lot of seriously expensive brochures at Monte Carlo!

What surprises are in store today?
