There is a Homer watercolor of a Bahamian sloop where he suggests toe hollow of the bow with just a hint of dirty paint water and the hull itself is just the white paper that I dearly love- a good watercolor is like improvisational jazz- you get one chance to get it right.

I'm also partial to Hopper- a top draftsman who never got an angle wrong and whose boats always sit in the water perfectly-

What's with the all-white crew sailing the bahamian sloop? Man'o'War Cay folks?

Need to find a bigger scan, Has a long personal story.

Short story is the average 70's went nowhere fero dream. was my home for many a year, most of those years were happy.

My mum and Dad divorced years before Dad died, she still remembers building Bommel as a big part of her life.

It's a good painting and it portrays well what the boat got used for for most of it's life, so far. the boat still lives but I doubt it will ever live it's potential.

Acually I spend more hours sailing Tom puss, The dingy.

Sorry, I wasn't clear- The white folks are sailing a catboat off Cape Cod - that one is by Hopper. The one by Homer (I just found it) is called Fishing Boat at Key West- that is a lot closer to the Bahamas and has the period correct people on board- His boats also sit in the water perfectly. This whole painting is just a riff.

Courtesy of my late mother-in-law, who for some unknown reason collected the full series of Clipper Ships by Charles Vickery. Now we have a stack of boxed plates we don't quite know what to do with. We framed the one I liked best.

I like this one as it has, like many Hopper paintings, a spooky quality to it. The washed out sun...they seem to be looking at the buoy with a bit more than casual interest....a day sail gone wrong?

This was my father's. It was gifted to him around 1969.

I love clipper ships. I've seen a lot of paintings. I've drawn many myself; even carved one into oak-tan leather.

I've never seen one quite like this. It hangs in my office at work right now.

I have no idea how old it is or who painted it. I have not been able to find the artist.

I'm working to get it appraised, then decide what to do with it.

I'll either foster it with a friend, or sell it. I don't know yet.

Absolutely my favorite Homer. Did you know he did a plate for etchings of this. It's owned by the Met in NYC. There are 50 of them in existence. Here's a poor scan of the etching.

BV,

Thanks for pointing that out. I hadn't noticed that there was a difference between the versions but had wondered why some were in colour and some black & White and cropped. Now I see there are some small differences such as the loose rope end hanging at the top right. Here's a slightly better version:

If any of you all want to come on up, the Portland Museum of Art is having a big Homer show right now through year end-

http://www.portlandm.../exhibition.php

Eight Bells is there, Weatherbeaten, and more hits as well. Not "my" watercolors though.

This is such an excellent thread.

I especially love real life photos of sailing vessels from when photography was new. Those Bluenose pics and "Starboard Lookout" are incredible.
I also love the 3rd painting shown in Viktor's post, of the sailor steering in the driving rain and no wind.

I know little of art, so keep it coming.

I have a copy of Starboard Lookout.

I have stood watches as the starboard lookout on navy ships.

What attracts me to that picture is that the guy is standing there doing his job. He is 'looking out'. But with all the spray and crappy weather, he can't see more than ten feet in front of him. But there he stands - probably soaked and frozen. Looking out.

The thing that keeps me coming back to Homer is the way he has the people in the picture, and for me it's all about the people, focused on their jobs. In Eight Bells, anyone who has ever had to pray for a break in the clouds to get a noon-sight understands the stress in those guys with the sextants.

Here's another one, these two fishermen are focused on their work. Homer takes one of the ugliest smelliest jobs in the world and lights it - creating art.

Google found this for me:

Attached File  1421.jpg   15.72K   7 downloads

I'm 1/3 the way reading the book: 1421 the year China Discovered The World.
unusal for me because I don't usually read a lot of books.
But I'm finding this book a real good read, the sailing abilitys the chinese had in the 15th centry was miles ahead of what the western world could even dream of, and also has revelance to NZ history, the local Maori have chinese DNA and there is evedence of shipwrecks from the 1421 expidition here too.
One thing the book suprised me was that as a youngin I always thought the the chinese (and their Junk rigs) were great at sailing upwind, this book says that they were crap at that too.

The painting decribes real well the piture I get in my mind reading the book of what their boats would have looked like in 1421.
I'd go on and on but it's almost a PA subject.

Not only are they focused on their jobs, but he seems to highlight the most arduous and dangerous jobs, under adverse conditions.
The men he paints are tough, and hard-bitten, he seems to illustrate man's struggle vs. the sea, or at least illustrates that making a living from the sea is hard, dangerous work.

Do you think the voyage never happend? From reading what I have I'm convinced that some sort of voyage happend. His details from the scraps of evendence he has are, well optimistic at best.
Some of what I find interesting is the chinese history that I knew absolutly nothing about, and how much tecnogily they had back then and their methods of gaining power over other nations.
