HMS NEPTUNE appears several times elsewhere on this website and the notes there are applicable here. At around this time in his career Frank Wood appears to have been particularly fond of fine detail and colours that were, compared with his later work, more gentle and less saturated. The result is this magnificent large study of a dreadnought at sea.
