Snowdonia and Hiker

2nd February 2015

Helping to Raise Funds for the Prince's Trust

A View From the Watkin Path, Snowdonia (also known as Snowdonia and Hiker) was recently sold for £750.00 during a silent auction held at The Prince’s Trust and EMC Leadership Dinner, the London Hilton, Park Lane, on Thursday 29th January 2015. I was delighted that the sale of one of my paintings (an acrylic, size: 12 x 12 inches) helped to raise some funds for the Trust. This opportunity was possible due to the help and kindness of Nina Lording (manager of Echo Beach Gallery), artist Darren Baker and the Prince's Trust.

Lucky Cat Sivota, Greece — Painting Commission

I really enjoyed painting this particular commission, which was based on a superb reference photograph supplied by the client. Sivota is such a picturesque setting for sailors, and I can understand why people visit the place. In this commission, I was asked to paint a scene which not only incorporated the yacht, Lucky Cat, and the beauty of the harbour as dusk approached, but also to paint the whole scene with a degree of realism. Painting info: Acrylic on canvas. Canvas dimensions: 24 x 22 inches.

The Rescue

The Rescue — Painting Commission

This painting, entitled The Rescue, is based on an original detailed sketch (drawn in 1990 by sailor Mr J Ballantyne) of a real-life rescue that took place off Berry Head quarry, Devon, on 10th September, 1989, featuring the rescue of a dismasted Beneteau Double First 32S5 by the Brixham-based, Arun-class lifeboat, The Edward Bridges. The painting features two additional yachts, Papillion (which Mr J Ballantyne was onboard) and Sigmagnifique. Painting info: Acrylic on canvas. Canvas dimensions: 16 x 24 inches. Available as a print.
