Two really great designs by Atkin have always caused me to pause at the balance and visual grace seen in just viewing the line drawings... "Amos Brown" and "Maid of Endor" ... (yes there are others).
I have never seen a photo of an "Amos Brown", and recently while experimenting with colorizing line drawings, I messed around with this favorite design from the past. Needless to say, the color illustration jumped out at me compared to the simple line drawing, and only confirmed my thoughts about this lovely design all this time... certainly one of Atkin's best. I was surprised at how she looked with her clothes on. I thought I had to share this cause the image just works for me. It would be nice to see some old photos of one of these. Although I am more interested in a trailerable design these days, she is lovely...
Quote from Mr Atkin:
AMOS BROWN:Seldom have I had the opportunity to design a boat purely without the influence of a client, but Amos Brown is such a craft -- one designed just for fun.
