Martin spent a lot of time in Portsmouth in the summer of 2005 for the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Trafalgar celebrations. This included a day on the Lord Nelson, during which he took part in the Trafalgar re-enactment. Several paintings resulted from that experience. 

Over the few days Martin was busy in Portsmouth, he collected material all the time, and may well have snapped The Warrior late one day. 

Martin must have taken hundreds of photographs, most of them discarded. But among the dross there are always some gems. This image of The Warrior with the small boats in the lovely evening light, was one of those - one of those that had to be painted.
