Sir Robin Knox-Johnston: A Force of Nature (BBC TV) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aVRbRBReYiY
Part of the inspiring story of a cool, real man, Robin Knox-Johnston.
Thank you BBC and thank you for posting this exceptional programme.
You may notice one painting appears in this film more than any other?
Robin named the painting “Roaring Forties”.
He requested the prints to give you an opportunity to share his adventure, to inspire others, fine art prints on canvas for the look and feel of the real thing are available, co signed by Robin, a numbered edition from my marine web site for a very affordable price.

I drew the concept sketches while lunching at his invitation, with Robin.
Robin once said during a discussion with me “I could make much more money in the city of London but I have to do what I do.
The same applies to you Gordon, painting is your calling, get on with it“.
I did, I do.
He has commissioned paintings by me three times, which I take as a great compliment.
Robin has been and remains an inspiration for me and I feel honoured to be able to say, a friend.
