Water, Water!



Fowey Regatta is so much fun. I love to get out onto the castle rock and watch the racing around the mark in the harbour mouth as you are so close to the action. It is especially exhilarating when the sea is heaving and the wind is strong as in this painting. The Troys pass so close to each other with their bow sprits like lances and everyone is yelling "'Water! Water!" "Starboard!!! Starboard!!!" I painted it with a palette knife to add to the excitement. Hame and Hal have this painting

Lui,

your new additions are wonderful. I love The Hats and the action of the Troys in this. xx
