Blue Hill Bay, Maine, USA

A beautiful bay at the foot of a stunning town of white weatherboard two-story houses straight out of a Norman Rockwell painting.

This is a pretty rocky coastline where the tidal range is huge.

Charlotte

43 x 50

Charlotte is the superb little “Haven 12½” being re-painted in Doug Hylan’s wooden boat shop in Brooklin, Maine in the USA.

I’m a fan of wooden boats and travelled to Brooklin specially to see places like this.

Doug’s a renowned designer, builder and writer in Brooklin’s well-known wooden boat world.

He’s typical of the welcoming, laid-back people around here, giving me free rein to sit in his workshop and paint.
