Growing up on a boat and circumnavigating the world, with my family at the age of 10, there was little to do but to draw and paint. When at sea I was taught to navigate by the stars and to use a sextant. When in port I would draw and paint the boats and fishermen around me. We spent four years on the boat, leaving Cape Town in July of 1980 and returning in October 0f 1984. 

I have been sailing and working  in marine related industries ever since.  When building a boat, designing a sail, dodger, or enclosure, I found it easier to draw the boat and the design to explain to my client what the boat would look like and how and why it would function a certain way. This naturally led to clients asking for full renderings and paintings of their boats.

Much of my work is reproduction work, where I paint  from photographs and and media given to me by the client for incorporation into their painting. Sizes and styles along with materials or medium used is the choice of the client. This is not my main business  but I enjoy every commission as though I were painting my own boat.

Sail Boats  Sailing                                     individual art works

These are some of the paintings the SJC artists and I have done.

As individual pieces of art they may be reproduced in different sizes but as most of us work from photographs and each piece is individually painted, no two can be identical.

This Gallery is merely an example for you to reference when sending a photograph of your own boat for painting.

My passion for boats and the sea extends beyond sailing and boat building.

Certain sea-scapes take longer than others to obtain the temperament of the sea.  Capturing the movement and   weather in storm conditions can take a considerable amount of time. Each vessel handles and behaves differently in different conditions which makes these types of paintings that much harder and more difficult to paint.

Boat yard paintings 

bf841f022862c8a2b6d3e7fa52920f8b--outdoor-painting-tug-boats.jpg

Waiting for paint to dry

Boat yard paintings are some of my favorite scenes. Probably because I have spent so much time in them. 

Having painted more than my fair share of boat hulls and bottom scraping, every time I paint a picture I can feel my arms aching from the yard work. I would often bring my easel to the yards when working on a boat. I found it would help with the monotony of waiting for the paint to dry or the next boat to be lifted.

If you own a boat yard simply send me a few pics and let me know what style you would like to have you painting or sketch done in and I will have the first renderings emailed to you in a week or so.

Regards,

Dillon

These are some typical scenes and styles available. If you would like something more realistic similar to a photographic representation simply send me the pics and we will have your renderings done in a week or so.

Final work will then commence.


 

Future Yachts  

Often I am asked to create CAD renderings with photographic back grounds and shadows. These are some examples you can use for your commissions. Simply send the plans of the boat and a few pics. Most of the plans I either have on file or can get from the manufactures. The sea conditions and composition are your choice.
