This watercolour is by Alan Whitehead, born in 1952 on the Isle of Sheppey, England. He has always been interested in the sea and ships, spending six formative years in the Royal Navy. During this time Alan taught himself to paint, concentrating on marine and nautical subjects. On leaving the Navy he began to paint professionally.
Alan has taken easily to watercolour, and his knowledge of the east coast of England, and particularly of the classical sailing barge, is reflected in his work.
He has also painted the west coast of Sweden, resulting in two highly successful one-man shows in Gothenburg. His first exhibition in the City of London in 1981 completely sold out. He has since had many successful exhibitions, and his work is exhibited in galleries in Australia and the USA.
The watercolour is framed in a gilt wooden frame and glazed.
The watercolour is in excellent condition.
