Donald works from his studio on the harbourside in St Ives Cornwall.
His Fighting Sail pictures depict famous ships and historic naval battles such as Trafalgar and Battle of the Nile.
"Donald's' 'Old Harbour' paintings are created from an extensive collection of photographs showing Cornwall in the past. From these he composes paintings that include multiple locations, so that often the images may look familiar but are not, quite. The specific period the paintings are set in is, 'The Olden Days', when all was right with the world, you could get a decent pint of ale for 'tuppence', and hopefully not wake up on one of Her Majesty's ships the next morning."
