Watercolour on paper c.1940.
Printed to original size.
One amongst several haunting naval images painted whilst Ravilious was fulfilling his role as Official War Artist aboard the H. M. S Highlander.
There’s a vastness of sky and seascape here which seems to emphasise the loneliness of the single mariner. But there’s a poignant beauty in the blues and browns, and the flecked spray seems to dance at the tops of an icy depth.
