A few flags on the Royal Yacht Britannia, at Edinburgh, Scotland.
Crewed by the RN, Royal Navy, and had a RM, Royal Marine, military band on board.

My main interest is painting Aviation Art.
I get a lot of enjoyment researching the historical background behind the picture I’ve been commissioned to paint.
I work in acrylic on my big paintings on canvas board but use water colors, pastels, soft and oil, for smaller pieces.
I also enjoy doing pet portraits in soft pastels on tinted paper, from photographs. Ideal presents for Xmas and birthdays.

  • Hi Sailor, As you know this was our Queen’s yacht. She was very upset when the government de-commissioned it to save money. It’s was supposed to be a hospital ship in times of war but the engines used a different fuel oil to the rest of the Royal Navy so was never used in the Falkland War.. Cheers enjoy your weekend. It’s a Bank Holiday here this weekend. It’s been a lovely sunny day today so got into the garden to tidy it up but I had to stop twice as my back was hurting to much. Cheers
