Listing Information
Known for his sailing paintings, John Steven Dews is the pre-eminent marine artist of our day. Painted in an exquisitely realist style, Dews’ ability to capture the movement and ferocity of the ocean is fully realised in this beautiful painting.

This is also an especially good illustration of the way in which Dews can accurately depict the fluctuating colour of the ocean, and the crystalline quality of light that can only be found on the open water.

The way in which the huge ship sits serenely upon the choppy water as it makes it way out to sea is highly realistic. The huge, looming ships help to infer a sense of drama; and one is given a strong impression of the expansiveness of the sea and sky, which seem to reach on forever. In his spare time, Dews is a sailor himself, and paints from a body of technical sailing knowledge, as well as an artistic one, making his paintings unparalleled in their precise attention to detail and technical accuracy.
