Portland Harbour, home to the 2012 Olympic sailing and now the International Sailing Academy. This painting shows a school of sailing boats out for a lesson. Living almost surrounded by water on the Isle of Portland, everyday brings new inspiration. This scene struck me as I walked over the causeway with the sun shining on the bright colour sails. Charging the scene to memory the cloud formation and the reflections in the sea were there any time for reference. I use only professional materials and this is oil on stretched canvas, with the occasional use of painting knives as well as brushes.
