Frigate departing Portsmouth,
this painting was produced in secrecy with the full cooperation of Royal Navy staff, Portsmouth Dockyard and the MoD & BAE Systems personnel, I thank you all for making a challenging commission relatively easy and a pleasure.
The choice of 41 x 30 cm (16″ x 12″) was because the painting was intended from the beginning as a gift for the Condell‘s wardroom.
Of the details here please note the actual size of the ship in the original painting is quite small, about 3″ (7.5 cm) so this nicely illustrates the quality of the painting.
