Sailing still Reigns

Looking forward to the Work Boat Races on Grand Anse Beach at the end of January.  Just a few paintings to celebrate!

Regatta Race 34" x 48" Acrylic

Sail Awaiting, 56" x 48" Oil

The folds of the sails always fascinate me--just waiting to be unfurled and start their symphony of flapping.

 

The Colour of Sail,  48 x 36, Oil

These young guys with this colourful sail were the proudest sailors that day. No one could compete.

Susan Mains Art School

 

Ok, I know the title is ambitious, but after years of people asking for art lessons, I think I have found a way to do it.  I have started a video demonstration of how I paint, and all I ask is that you give me feedback.

That means helpful comments, not necessarily about the quality of the video.  This is a beta version, and what I am interested in knowing is if I am communicating well enough that you can follow the instructions.

So, watch the You tube video, subscribe, and follow the playlist.  Let me know what you think!

Happy painting.   By the way, you can get materials at Art and Soul at Spiceland Mall.

Violet Clouds Rush In

Rainy Day Regatta 24" x 36" Oil on Canvas 36"

 

The first day of the sailing festival--violet grey skies, gusts of wind, swells breaking over the boats. Then towards evening the light shining on the sails from the west--perfect.
