Painting Description

The fleet of ‘Marigold’, ‘Tuiga’, ‘Lulworth’, ‘Delphine’, ‘Cambria’ and ‘Mariquita’ are depicted waiting for the breeze to fill in, with a backdrop of mountains and Monte Carlo. The artist was crewing aboard the gaff-cutter Partridge and whilst waiting for the breeze was able to take notes of the scene in his sketch-book.
