Royal cruise (HMY Britannia - River Clyde)

Royal cruise (HMY Britannia - River Clyde) is now available to purchase as a giclée print both framed and mounted.

The work depicts the Royal Yacht Britannia passing Dumbarton Rock during one of its trips on the River Clyde. It was built at the shipyard of John Brown and Co Ltd in Clydebank in 1952.

Michael said he could not resist the temptation of painting the Royal Yacht Britannia as it sailed the River Clyde. He decided on the composition of painting the ship passing Dumbarton Rock from Langbank, as it would give scale and balance to the left hand side of the picture with Ben Lomond in the background.

The expanse of water in the foreground carries the eye to the main focal point, while also conveying space and distance. The buoy on the right hand side of the picture helps to break the waterline of the ship.
