Yachts are passion projects, so why not capture your yacht as a work of art? New York based artist and designer Scott McBee has a lifelong love of ocean liners and yachts, so began capturing their iconic beauty in his artwork. These large format gouache paintings, typically three by nine feet, are bright follow the tradition of naval architectural painting. His public showings include ocean liners and classic steam ships, often painted from original builders’ models from the 1800s, but a growing number of large yacht owners have commissioned portraits of their vessels. Currently, McBee has work on display at the Chinese Porcelain Company, the South Street Seaport Museum in lower Manhattan as well as part of the permanent collection at The Master Works Foundation in Bermuda.
McBee received his BA in graphic design and illustration from San Diego State University and has had a career in commercial illustration since 1989.
