More than a showcase of the versatility and creativity of the author’s work, this book, written by the artist himself, also reveals its accuracy, through 5 key case studies that explain the initial inspirations, gathering of source material and often lengthy artistic progression that leads to the creation of a finished painting. The artist has selected over 150 paintings and sketches to illustrate his prolific career, painting techniques and influences, dividing them into sections on Nelson’s Navy, “The American War of Independence”, illustrating the naval writers and the Modern Maritime Scene, which includes recent commissions from the commercial sector and yachting community. This title covers the artist’s inspirations, techniques, interpretations and primary research. It features over 150 paintings and sketches faithfully reproduced on high quality paper. It is suitable for Patrick O’Brian fans, as well as enthusiasts of marine art and history.
