Oil painting - live - to feature on Queen Mary 2 Transatlantic crossing

Robert Lloyd's preparatory sketch for his next QM2 painting

Passengers travelling on a Queen Mary 2 crossing to New York in November will have an opportunity to get their hands on a unique souvenir – an oil-painting of the ship actually created during the voyage.

Maritime artist Robert Lloyd – whose works hang prominently on all three Cunard Queens - will be in the ship’s Grand Lobby every morning, working on the painting and answering questions from guests.

The work will be sold to the highest bidder on the last afternoon at sea, and proceeds will be donated to The Prince’s Trust.

Fares for the crossing, which leaves Southampton on 12 November and arrives in New York on 19 November, start at £899, including return flight.
