Artist's description:

"Everything you can imagine is real."
~Pablo Picasso

Imagine a regatta of sailboats in the colours you love and feel at home around. Surrounding yourself with the colours that "whisper to you."

I have given a suggestion in india ink of just that. A row or regatta of sails all in the striving to win.
I like to think it isn't the win but the adventure to get there.
Soft hues, minimal loose lines, sails more or less correct, jib and main sail catching the wind they can and all in a variation of the same violet hues.
Cloudless sky with a hint of light blue and tints of mauve in the sails.
Signature found in the right hand sailboat and light ink to show a tiny ripple in the water.

It is a one of a kind, ready to hang in your space, or someone else's space, possibly a sailor or fan of the water.
The ideas are overflowing here with me in my new studio/home and I hope you like them.
Please feel free to look at the other watercolours I will be posting. I have several that are framed and ready to hang.
My creations are all original, one of a kind that have been professionally framed in white wooden frames with mattes. All work is signed on the back of the watercolour paper or canvas.

They will be packaged professionally, with a tracking code through Canada Post here in Southampton, Ontario.

Please message me with any questions or requests as I love commission work and have done several of these for instance the "Summer Line" that I will be posting with the relevant bathing suits for the particular family in mind.

Thanks so much for stopping by my site and coming into my studio space with me.
For the newer work I will be sure to post actual photos of me painting but I had all of my watercolours framed so I have done the best I can to show all the areas for uploading the work.
