This is the Carteret Sailing School ( France/ North West/ Manche) gone for a trip on a very beautiful (and very rare :rolleyes: ) summer day.
This day was so perfect (late august 2012) it is seldom seen here,you can believe me.
The boats were sailing quite rapidly through the "havre" (can't translate it) to reach the sea, so I told one of my friends to take pictures of them as they moved along.
So he did.
As my sis in law loves boats, I offered her the painting for her 60th birthday in February : she liked it !
C&C welcome.

Your sister is lucky to have this beautiful painting. The format you've used also adds to movement of the boats racing. Nice job!

Beautiful. I really like the shadows on the sails. I love to paint sailboats also and recently moved to near the ocean in NJ so hope to do more.
