Just finished. This was recently commissioned by a close friend as a Xmas gift for her husband.
After living on their boat for 15 years they recently moved onto dry land. Last winter they spent six months in the Caribean. She wanted a nice memory of their trip.
The watercolour is from a picture her friend took (credit pending). (Update: Shout out to Patricia Evans for permission to paint her photo) The rigging was a challenge but I think it turned out. She loves it and that’s what matters.
I was lucky enough to spend part of a vacay aboard one year which makes the painting a little extra special.
Boats and I don’t usually get along. I just don’t have sea legs but catamarans are super stable and this cat is aptly named Exhale. A one hour sail in Toronto Harbour had me thinking seriously about committing to a week in the Bahamas. It’s something to put on my bucket list.
