Description

At 126 metres in length the Royal Yacht Britannia was built at John Brown and Co shipyard in Clydebank, just like the QE2. Michael had the idea of painting it as he thought it might not be seen sailing on the Clyde again. As it turns out he was right, as it’s now berthed at Leith dock in Edinburgh.

He decided on the motif of Dumbarton Rock as a background to give the boat scale and locality in still waters, with a sunlit sky reminiscent of the clouds in Jan Vermeer’s View of Delft.

Michael’s other Royal Yacht Britannia work depicts the ship being towed by Flying Spindrift under Erskine Bridge. While another work which features Dumbarton Rock is Low tide – Clyde coast.
