Dews’ depiction of historical boating events is a typical and much-loved subject for him, and this painting reflects that passion. The contrasting of the crisp white foam and the deep blue water reflect Dews’ attention to detail and his understanding of the sea. Known for his maritime paintings, John Steven Dews is an acclaimed British marine artist. Painted in the realist style, Dews’ ability to capture the movement of the ocean is fully realised in this beautiful painting.
