'The Confidence', watercolour, 39 x 27 cm.
The North Sea is an unforgiving place and many people work there in the oil and gas fields off north-east Scotland. The Confidence is one of the fleet of search and rescue vessels which provide security for the workers in this wild and unpredictable sea. She is shown here with a Coastguard helicopter, one of those which also regularly operate over the sea here.
The original painting was sold by commission.
