This volume presents the considerable artistic output of Britain's leading marine painter since 2003. It is heavily illustrated with images ranging from large paintings to sketchbook drawings with text written by the artist himself. The new book reflects the artist's developing career during a time in which Geoff served a five-year term as President of the Royal Society of Marine Artists, worked on large-scale paintings such as the definitive Mary Rose, and also completed numerous outdoor sketches and paintings.
The book is divided into five sections: 1. London and the Thames; 2. Portsmouth and the English Channel; 3. The Mediterranean; 4. America (including the Caribbean) 5. On the High Seas. This concept introduces the artist's plein air painting and sketches and sets these alongside the exhaustively researched maritime history paintings to which he owes his standing as Britain's leading marine artist.
