HMS Warrior Print by David Bell - A Magnificent Watercolour Print
93651 HMS Warrior Watercolour, £225.00
***Limited Edition of 100***
The year is 1781. The American War of Independence is drawing to a close, but France - as always - poses a threat. More warships are needed. In Portsmouth Naval Dockyard the shipwrights are working from dawn to dusk. Still on a slipway but already flying the 'red duster' HMS Warrior is close to completion.
It's an evocative scene, captured by the brilliant draughtsmanship and artistic talent of David Bell. The longer you look at the painting, the more it seems to draw you in.
Is it imagination or can you actually smell the pungent scent of hemp rope, paint and boiling pitch? Can you really hear the sound of sawing, hammering and the constant cry of the gulls? Signed, framed and numbered to a Limited Edition of only 100, this is a wonderful picture and a powerful reminder of our maritime heritage.
