Fine Art Prints - Royal Navy Ship At Sea On Patrol - HMS Monmouth - Black Duke

On Patrol (HMS Monmouth)

Named the Black Duke, and maybe a rebel
But carried more honour than any,
Chased pirates and smugglers and other foes
And her rescue missions were many.

About The Artist

I went to sea at 15 with the Royal Navy and came ashore again 12 years later having experienced typhoons in the Pacific, hurricanes in the Atlantic, the deep freeze of the Arctic and monsoons of the tropics; but such beauty everywhere.

Then after 3 years in commerce which was illuminating but boring, I became a Financial Adviser for the next 47 years, which on balance I found wonderfully fulfilling.

Even after all that time, salt water still flows through my veins but I love the dry land and all its surprises too.

I have had no formal training but had been painting in water colour on and off for about twenty years. After trying acrylics in about 2015 the bug bit: I had to become a painter!

Poems

Each of the prints of my original paintings comes with a thought provoking four line verse, written by Diane Cooke who has taught and inspired KS2 children for many years, with a special interest in developing their creative writing skills.

Prints and Framing

Print Quality
Our Giclee fine art prints use pigment based none fade inks which typically last for 100 + years and offer the best possible reproduction of colour and hue. They are printed on slightly textured Museum Heritage 310 gsm Fine Art Paper.

Print Sizes
The standard sizes are shown with each picture but should you prefer larger or smaller prints please ask for a quote. Please remember measurements are in centimetres and approximate to within a very few millimetres.

Package & Postage
P&P is included in prices for the UK. Outside the UK please ask for a quote.

Framing
Because framing is so personal and décor sensitive, prints are delivered unframed and rolled in strong tubes. Please contact me if you would like to hear my suggestions for framing.
