Percival was an American ship portrait artist who worked mainly for British and American captains. His small to medium size watercolors shows an accurate handling of the ship and often a light, good weather impression. He is represented for example in the Peabody Museum Salem and in different private collections, mainly in Great Britain and the US. The Ship *Earnock* was built 1877 at Birrell in Dumbarton (Scotland) and owned by T Dixon & Sons in Glasgow, Scotland. It was built in the tradition of the fine Clipper Ships known from Scotland.
