Admiral Lord Nelson died of his wounds on HMS Victory 21st Oct 1805 at the battle of Trafalgar.
I had a job getting far enough back to take this photo with my 28mm pocket camera.

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.

    Beautiful capture Neil! I am reading about our Revolution and I try to imagine what it must have looked like looking out of the New York harbor in 1776 and seeing 251 magnificent British ships. Enjoy your captures my friend. ~Sam

  • Thanks Sam
    Yes, going below decks was quiet an experience, very low and cramped. Gunfire and shouting was played all the time over loudspeakers.
