Seascape of Nelson's Flagship

Victory Entering Portsmouth
This is a painting of Admiral Lord Nelson's famous flagship 'Victory' shown here entering Portsmouth harbour, her home port. The oldest commissioned warship in the Royal Navy she is now preserved in the Historic Dockyard at Portsmouth where you can go on board to see hat life was like on an 18th Century Man O'War.

Nelson was killed at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805 on board Victory and there were big celebrations last October commemorating the battle. I am auctioning a Limited Edition Print taken from my Original watercolor so click here if you want to bid, and have a little piece of English History.
