Golden Hinde’s voyage

remains one of the most extraordinary adventures of all time combining many of the ingredients of a bestselling story.

Francis Drake was a Devon man who captained the “Golden Hinde” (pronounced – ‘hiynd’) (or Golden Hind), an English “Race Galleon” type of ship Sailing out of Plymouth, England Drake became the first Captain and the First English captain to circumnavigation the globe.

Ironically, this painting, on one of the very, very rare occasions I’ve allowed art work to leave my studio unpaid for, was taken to Amsterdam by a Dutch woman Maryse Sportouch, and never paid for; an act of piracy if ever there was one!
