This afternoon I painted in the company of the Wapping Group of Artists. The “Wappers” as they are affectionately known are a group of painters who get together once a week in the summer months to record life along the River Thames and its estuary.
Above is my painting of the Golden Hinde. This 12×10 inch study is in oil on board. The two small figures hidden in the middle distance are Bert Wright and Geoff Hunt both of whom are Past Presidents of the Royal Society of Marine Artists.
