Rowing Painting

Iain Vellacott Rowing Painting

I have just completed this painting of a rowing eight.

The painting measures about 65cm x 90cm and is one of the series of sports pictures that I am doing for my exhibition in Winchester next March.

I never rowed when I was at school but I love the sight of an eight powering down the river and wanted to try to capture the speed, power, co-ordination and symmetry.
