The story mentions Robin’s first great adventure celebrated by my painting for Sir Robin Knox-Johnston “Roaring Forties“.
The famous marine painting “Roaring Forties” is a real piece of marine history, much reproduced by journals when writing about Robin Knox-Johnston and a very collectible limited edition and signed by the yachtsman Sir Robin Knox Johnston.
It was as you may be aware produced specially for and in close collaboration with Britain’s most illustrious yachtsman and master mariner, Sir Robin Knox-Johnston.
We had a brief, charming compliament recently re the beautiful Heritage quality marine print of “Roaring Forties”, one of those thing which helps make our work feel worth while.

I have painted quite a few BI ships including one for Robin Knox-Johnston who started his amazing career and adventures on Dumra.
