The black sail,and the green sea.


I love sailing and being on,in,or around water.I love how water can absorb or reflect light and color this makes it an exciting subject to paint.Crystal clear waters are my favorite because 
the colors of what hides beneath the waves can filter through.

This is a local Mozambican sailing dhow, all of which are built by hand with limited tools .When you look at them closely you wonder how they don't sink, since they are so roughly built.

This small painting and others are available to be purchased at Roger Brown Original Paintings Ebay
