If you’re wondering what makes this so extraordinary, aside the fact that the paintings are life-like, the thing is, you can actually buy a luxury yacht for the same amount. Jamie Medlin the artist who makes these, describes himself as a ‘marine artist’.
What makes it even more amazing is that it is often hard to tell that the pictures have actually been hand painted using a photographic style, which the artist says gives the works more detail and accuracy.
Mr Medlin has painted maritime art subjects for over 25 years, starting with boats from the Falmouth Working Boat fleet in Cornwall.
He studied at the Falmouth School of Art and Design before working in both London and Australia and then returning to his native Cornwall.
The main outlet for his work is Christie’s in London where he says he regularly submits to their marine art work sales.
