Largs series III
The third in the Largs series that can be seen in the flesh at the CBC Twenty 11 art show.
There is a real comfort and safety aspect to viewing yachts from the shore. I'm not sure I would want to be involved in the bounce and bustle of a race, but it does look interesting from a standing position on the shore!
Last time I was at Largs I noticed a few vessels with clear sails - they just didn't look right. When I did a painting of them I made sure that the see-through sails were quite opaque. Wonderful thing this artistic license!
