        can't wait to see what it looks like with a paint job
        Push enough pixels around and it'll look like an aeroplane profile.

          Oil on board 3ft x 2ft. 3 days to complete (still wet!).

          This will probably be available for raffle at the Great North Fly In.

            Very very nice indeed.Did you mean 3 days until you've finished it [ looks finished to me ] or did you mean 3 days from start to finish?
            Here s a question for just for curiosity,i may ask this on e hangar as well.
            What is considered as an acceptable means for transferring a picture onto canvas or board etc for the painting?.
            I have always had it in my mind that things should if possible be free hand but it seems that there are so many ways of doing this now from projecting ,to programs to grid type measurements it all seems different to the basic draw it- paint it.
            I just wondered what people thought.

              Three days from start to finish. Bet you didn't expect that answer!

              My method is that I do a detailed pencil drawing first (having done a few smaller rough sketches to get the right composition) as well as larger sketches of complicated high detail areas. I paint the background first - If I like the cloudscape on its own, then the painting continues. To transfer the drawing onto the canvas depends on the size of the painting.. One as big as the demon is drawn in basic outline freehand. The problem is that pencil is a pain in the posterior to remove from oil paint, so a very hard grade of pencil is used VERY gently. With the outline in place I start at the left and work across in full and mostly final detail.

                Thanks for that,3 days ,crikey.
                I guess if you have it planned ahead then you have done the majority of the time consuming work.
                Lovely stuff I look forward to seeing more,what's next on the agenda

                          Hmm a better image than the one I used... I need to complete the back end of the painting - while the colours are ok, the lettering sucks....

                                Balloon Bomber & Harvards

                                It's been awhile but here's a couple of new works done digitally in Corel Painter X.
                                The first is based on a magazine article about bomb carrying balloons sent by the Japanese over western North America during WWII. It's a bit of a 'fantasy' piece in that I never found a pic of an RCAF P-40 stationed on the west coast, that had shark's teeth. But hey, what's a P-40 without shark's teeth?
                                The second depicts Commonwealth Air Training Program Harvards flying over Lake Huron in Southern Ontario during the war.

                                  Good line!

                                  Very nice - I especially like the feel, like a glossy Commando comic cover, which I presume is deliberate.

                                          Here is the last one, finished due to lack of talent and not sure what and how to do anything else to it.I also felt the need to leave it and try a new project
