Original pyrography hand made wood art of racing yacht "Marigold".

Drawn from a photograph I took of her sailing in Plymouth Sound during the powerboat race in 1999. As a keen sailor, my knowledge of how sails set really helps when drawing sailboats. In this pyrograph, you can easily see the sails straining with the wind. About 7 hours of work in this pyrograph.

Measures aprox 355 x 260mm framed.

 Designed by the renowned Charles Nicholson and built in the Camper and Nicholson yard in Gosport, Hampshire in 1892, she is an 80ft gaff-cutter now fully restored to her former glory. These days Marigold is based in the South of France. Usually some boats are named after a person, often a wife or daughter. The original owner, a Mr WE Foster, named his daughter (born in 1929) after his yacht! Now that's loving your boat! Designed as a racing yacht, Marigold is reputed to be able to average 16 knots - I know a lot of modern yachts that can't go that fast!! 

All pyrographs should be kept out of direct sunlight, as the sun will bleach the wood.
