About the ArtworkAn abstract painting of boats at sea from Ross. One of his favourite subjects to paint, because it allows complete freedom of colour, movement and texture, this particular piece was painted during the glorious sunshine that we experienced in Ireland in early June 2023. Bright yellows, orange and blues bring sunshine, warmth and a summer energy to the work. A fleet of beautiful sailboats making the most of a fine day on the ocean.
"We recently gifted a 2005 yachts painting to Jenny Lewis’s GRA Charity, so I thought I would paint a larger version using a large palette knife and adding more colour. The yacht forms developed in ethereal shape, as I worked the knife and added colour to white. I let the first layer dry and added a coat of Liquitex Medium before adding a second layer and then finished off by deepening tone contrast with Prussian Blue liberally applied with a small brush".
