Artwork Description

Astronomy is the oldest of the sciences and quite possibly the oldest use of astronomy is navigating by the stars. Whilst painting leisure craft mooring under the milky way I thought of seafarers navigating by the stars above.
Celestial navigation is still an important part of a navigator’s formal training. Seafarers depend on a complex network of radio satellite inertial and other navigation systems. Should any or all of these systems fail, the starry sky can serve as the last resort.
History of navigation is the history of seamanship.
