2014 Round the Island Race – Just the slightest breath of wind.

Less than favourable racing conditions with little or no wind for most of the day meant there was a subdued / serene mood to the annual Round the Island Race this year. With no clouds in the sky either it was short on dramatic photo opportunities, but I had in mind that the calm conditions and subtle lighting would suit a painterly approach to the images this time around for me. Looking towards the start at Cowes and shooting with a long lens from Yarmouth Pier I’ve crafted this minimalist digital creation using flypaper textures that I might just one day re-create with my actual paintbrushes and either oils or acrylics on canvas.
