Beaufort Scale paintings
Collection of small paintings depicting the Beaufort Scale of wind strength in a series of 13 deceptively simple oil paintings. I've matched up the wave height and sea state, although sailors will know they don't always match neatly. Wind against tide, for instance, will create much more lumpy seas than you might expect. I once sailed through standing waves in the Solent, which was a bit like being in a live physics experiment.
I know I've sailed in everything up to and including Force 10, so can picture those for myself. At the time I was painting the series, the Caribbean was being battered by hurricanes so there were plenty of images around for me to use as inspiration to finish off the series.
I've had some fun exhibition these in various formations. They are for sale individually but would be much more effective as a series on a staircase or corridor!
