Pilots Cutters and ‘the squeeze’

The Sea

Recent work – The Pilots Cutters

‘Waiting for ‘the off’, Fowey,  oil on canvas – 100cm x 100cm – SOLD

Every year the Pilot Cutter Review is held on a  May weekend in Cornwall.  Here are some of the boats hoisting sails, waiting for the race line to form. Mascotte is in the centre, one of the original Bristol Channel Pilot Cutters, with the distinctive N on her sail, for Newport. On the left is the beautiful Pilot Cutter Freya, newly built by Luke Powell and Working Sail, launched in April this year. In the background in full tan sail is the Westerman who took part in the racing.

Interior and space

Recent work – still life

‘The squeeze’  oil on canvas – 30cm x 30cm – SOLD

Here I have tried to capture the feel of  lemons, not just their appearance. The intense, fresh, face-puckering citrus danger –  sharp feel, sharp flavour.  In this image though, all the energy has gone out of the fruit, the danger – passed. The colours have dulled, the focus soft. Two flies cautiously eye up the spent juice.
