Painting naval battles

July 6, 2017


I was wondering why I like painting marine pieces so much, why am I drawn to harbours?

I used to joke about it saying that: 'I must have been a pirate in my previous life'.  Today I realised that history was and still is a big part of my life. I wouldn't decide to study law if I didn't like reading about it. I remember how much I used to enjoy reading about historical moments and imaging what could it look like in details. It helped me to remember all facts for longer. Today painting dramatic scenes takes me back in time once more.



Part of me thinks that it would be interesting to connect my marine painting with a specific event in history such as Spanish Armada from 1588, when the duke of Medina Sidonia's purportedly invincible fleet, ordered by Spain's King Philip II to cross the Channel and land in England for example. Then the other part of me wants to connect with as many of you as possible, hence I like the fact that my marine paintings can be versatile and they could present different naval battles in different countries.

I present you my recent piece called "Morning truce". I purposely left it open for interpretation so you can imagine your favourite naval battle.
