An exhibition of paintings by Lachlan Goudie capturing the birth of a new generation of royal naval ships.

For the last seven years, renowned artist, Lachlan Goudie, who was a judge on BBC’s Big Painting Challenge, has been sketching and painting in the BAE shipyards on the Clyde and Forth, chronicling the construction of a new generation of royal naval ships and the people who work to create these giants.

The Type 45 destroyers and the monolithic Queen Elizabeth class aircraft carriers can now be seen from Portsmouth Historic Dockyard when they are in their home port of Portsmouth.

The exhibition captures Goudie’s personal view of these engineering titans and coincides with the much-heralded arrival of HMS Queen Elizabeth.
