New Gig rowing paintings

“Go” 100cm x 50cm – oil on canvas

This is a fun painting – I tried to show the colour, and the blur of the St. Agnes start line. My gig paintings are currently on sale in Sully’s Framing, Penryn, Cornwall.

‘Circling for the start’ 80cm x 60cm – oil on canvas

With so many boats now in the racing, you have to find your space in the water whilst waiting for the heat to start. It made me think of sharks circling.

”To Tresco’  31cm x 31cm – oil on canvas

A view of the islands from the ferry on the way home.  A quick visit, I always wish I could stay longer.

World Pilot Gig Rowing Championships – Isles Of Scilly

Coming soon … New gig rowing paintings and sketches.

I’ve just got back from the Isles of Scilly World Pilot Gig Championships.

It was a great weekend – with the competition for places hard fought in all the heats, not just those at the top.  I’m back with a sore throat from singing, sore hands from rowing (but with bottom luckily more or less intact) . Over the next few weeks I will be posting new gig rowing art from the championships, and trying to capture the colour and excitement – and hard work – of gig racing.

This is one I made earlier. It’s called ‘At the start line’.
