QuietPosted: February 26, 2013
On my bedside table these days is a book by the great British watercolour painter Trevor Chamberlain. He is a member of The Wapping Group of Artists, a group who meet every Wednesday to record life in various locations on the river Thames. Check out their work if you want to see some extraordinary marine painting. Every night I read a few pages and I guess it gets me dreaming about painting boats in the mist. I woke up to fog this morning and that meant I had to find a boatyard to paint on my way to work. This was sketched at the Beaconsfield Yacht Club.
