‘Portrait of a Naval Officer’

An oil portrait painting of an Able Seaman who joined the Royal Navy and ended up as an officer.

Oil on linen canvas Approx; 36.50 x 30.50 in 93 x 77 cm

I was Commissioned to paint this picture sometime ago.

The gentleman in this painting joined the Royal Navy as an Able Seaman and eventually climbed the ranks and on leaving the service became a Lieutenant Commander.

Quite an achievement for anyone that joins the service as an ordinary hand.
