Detail from Richard Branson, Chay Blyth and the Blue Ribband


Off Bishops’ Rock, Isles of Scilly, this water colour was painted on location on-board the press launch, as the event occurred, finished during the press conference and signed on the reverse in pencil by all the crew before they dispersed. There is simply nothing else like this watercolour.
