boats & water

Rob MacGillivray


boats and water

I am lucky to be able spend some of my time visiting friends in St Ives, Cornwall and many of my boat or water pictures were done there.  These drawings are all done with a brush pen and ink wash.  I never use pencil, just start straight in with black ink and hope for the best.  Some are drawn in the rain and some are drawn in a panic as the tide comes in.  Oh, some of these pictures have neither boats or water in them, but they seem at home here anyway.

The pictures in the gallery below are a selection of works that have (mostly) been sold. Many of them are now available as prints or cards.  If you are looking for original pieces for sale, please contact me directly for a list with prices and images or come to my next exhibition.
