The painting:

Black Deep Channel, #ThamesEstuary,  S.B. #Cambria and M.V. #RiverTrader of Armac Marine exchange greetings.

The location here is the splendidly named “Black deep” Channel of the River Thames estuary.

There are many stories attached to Black Deep including it may be the last resting place of the 2 Plantagenet princes alleged to have been imprisoned and murdered in the Tower of London…

What we can be sure of is many famous keels have floated over those waters including as painted by WMJ Turner, The Fighting Temeraire, tugged to her last berth to be broken up, 1838  and including many sturdy Thames sailing barges, over 2000 of which were operated on the Thames at the beginning of the 20th century.

This painting is included in a unique occasion, “Life on the Ocean Wave” my marine paintings Exhibition at and by invitation in the European Parliament, Brussels May 2011.

Credit where it is due:
Our particular thanks to Barry Pickthall (Pickthall Picture Library) and author, journalist and sailor Sam Llewellyn for the inspiration and to Basil Brambleby secretary of the Cambria Trust and Tim Lowery of Armac Marine.
Also my friends at the UK Hydrographic Office at Taunton and Trinity House London who made sure my ships are in Black Deep were not sitting on a sand bank.
All helped enormously and willingly, giving authority to this painting “New and Old“.
