      How come the trolley bus fixation Baz?
      My house is right on the end of an old trolley bus route where they would turn around to go back, some of the old pylons are still standing.

          Had a dabble with charcoal etc, but I have to say I'm liking computer art much more these days. There's no mess, no smell, less swearing, its easy to pick up at a moments notice, takes up no space (PC aside), great for book illustrations and requires no running costs (electric aside)

              Having worked in oils, acrylics, watercolours, ink, pencil, graphite sticks, charcoal, chalk, mud, ground up berries etc I find that digital work is no different, only plus side is it is more forgiving and flexible than some others, it is quicker to work in, much more portable and easier to store, plus I don't then spend half the day cleaning up the mess.

              Have to agree with Inkworm here, although I've never worked with ground up berries(!)

              To all those people out there thinking about playing with computer art, do it!

                Lovely work Baz.

                Photoshop is great and a lot of people do some amazing stuff with it, but it is often difficult to get a naturalistic feeling from it as it really isn't intended as a painting tool. Try Corel Painter if you want a more natural feel (it is cheaper too!).

                  Brings back childhood memories. l remember once waiting at the trolley stop at Dalston Lane station and when it arrived, an inner rear tyre exploded. Boy did I **** myself.

                      Have to agree that CS5 is a bit too bloated and trying to be a jack of all trades instead of the original photo editing software that it was intended to be, certainly with the media brushes they are now trying to encroach on the Painter market I also wouldn't be surprised if a few years down the line it is split into specialist packages that are closely intergrated with each other, having said that knowing what to do with the brushes and a decent graphics tablet does make a huge difference.

                      As for the ground up berries, I wouldn't recommend it, the monitor is really sticky for weeks after and it can attract the flies
                      Push enough pixels around and it'll look like an aeroplane profile.

                            Thanks to Robbo for bringing this to my attention

                            http://www.rafmuseum.org.uk/london/n...20the%20Public

                            25 May 2011

                            The Royal Air Force Museum London is proud to announce the re-opening of its Art Gallery to the public on Friday 10th of June with the unveiling of a signature exhibition of portraits by renowned wartime artist Eric Kennington.

                            This exhibition, The Face of Courage, has been guest curated by the Senior Research Fellow in History of Art at Kingston University, Jonathan Black.

                            For much of his distinguished career, Kennington was regularly classed by leading critics as belonging to the ranks of such exceptional portraitists as: Hans Holbein the Younger; Albrecht Drer; Franz Hals; Van Gogh and Augustus John. Furthermore, many of his artistic contemporaries rated him as one of the finest draughtsman of his day and while among famous contemporaries who admired Kenningtons portraiture were: Winston Churchill; J.B. Priestley; Siegfried Sassoon; George Bernard Shaw; Geoffrey de Havilland; Richard Hillary and T.E. Lawrence.

                            The exhibition will present about three dozen works covering all of the Armed Services, the Auxiliary Services and London Transport and some notable civilians. Pictures have been loaned to the show by the National Portrait Gallery, the Imperial War Museum, the National Army Museum, the Tate, the National Maritime Museum, the Ministry of Defence as well as from Kenningtons family and other private lenders and art dealers.

                            Kennington was among only a handful of British artists who distinguished themselves as official British war artists during both World Wars. His portraits were widely hailed as works of art and as morale-boosters for they presented British Servicemen in a guise that convinced many spectators that the nations armed forces did indeed contain men who had the will to triumph over their German, Italian and Japanese opponents in battle.

                            This exhibition, the first to focus specifically on his Second World War Art, seeks to reassess Kenningtons significant contribution to British War Art and to acknowledge his undoubted standing as one of the great British portraitists of the Twentieth Century. In a Peoples War he produced unforgettable images of ordinary men and women who displayed extraordinary courage and resource.

                            Please note on occasion the Art Gallery may be closed to the public for private viewings. As we receive notification of these dates we will place them in the Whatson section of this website.

                                Just registered on this fine website. I recognise a few guys here and some of the excellent art work, mostly from ehanger. There are quite a few names I don't recognise and work I haven't seen before but glad I have now. I'd like to add some my own efforts here and hope I don't jump the gun in doing so, I couldn't find a members introduction bit.

                                      Very,very, nice Paul, I should think you are pleased.

                                      Silly question though is it 92 or early 616 Sqn codes please?

                                          Well I decided to paint all three of the Hunters in the end as it seemed the right thing to do and a more colourful option, not a great photo (I'm no photographer). As always comments welcome
