The Painting, “Surprise! Hermione“.

Having painted a scene with the original ‘Hermione’ this piece makes a modern running mate, a pair, representing the story of magnificent original and the new replica frigate built completed recently at Rochefort sur mer near La Rochelle.

I have painted the subtleties of mysterious fog many times, sometimes on location, in particular during the best days of my life (so far) when I lived behind a beach overlooking the beautiful Saint Austell Bay, painted from what was my studio window.

In common with most sailors, I have sailed, navigated, in sea fog many times thus there is a wealth of experience in the form and colours of this atmospheric, emotional painting, for you to discover and enjoy.

The building of the new Hermione (pronounced in southern english, Her’me’on) took 18 years, as part of a project instigated soon after World War 2, to revitalise a former arsenal town, devastated by the Germans when they withdrew in 1944

The new Hermione is a huge success helping attract  artisans from all over Europe, millions of visitors and world wide publicity, revitalising what was the dying town of Rochefort sur mer, I sincerely salute the many brave, visionary people associated with the project and wish ‘The Harwich Mayflower Project’ similar good fortune.
