Swiss Army Knife

HMS Protector by Tim O'Brien - Lo-Res

Amazing, I love it.

Beautifully painted, I can almost feel the cold.

A beautiful clear and pure painting.

Super sense of iceberg power and might

Wow, what a striking image.

Love the way you have painted those icebergs and the ship Tim. So skilfully created and it really makes the viewer shiver.

Terrific seascape Tim, beautifully painted.

Absolutely fabulous, love the way you have painted the ice, difficult subject

Thank you for all your kind comments – yes, it certainly was a challenge with painting the inspiring, but unforgiving environment with a limited palette, but glad it worked out okay, especially with the red/yellow of the ship as a contrast.

Hang on Studio Wall

Affectionately known as the Royal Navy’s ‘Swiss Army Knife’ as it is red, versatile, and always there when needed, HMS Protector pushes through the freezing waters of the world’s southernmost continent during a patrol of the British Antarctic Territory.
