In 1942, Alex Colville enlisted in the Canadian Armoured Corps, and in spring of 1944, he was assigned as an official Canadian war artist, one of a group of officers appointed to record the events of World War II. After training in England, he boarded the HMCS Prince David, and accompanied crew and commandos on exercises and raids into France and the Mediterranean. Colville's perspective of this scene is from the ship, and he included the nautical paraphernalia on its deck and a gun mount. The HMCS David lies at dock, in a peaceful pause from its war activities, and Colville captured this typical sunny day on the Mediterranean with a light, bright palette. The artist's mastery of watercolour is truly impressive in this finely detailed scene.
