OOPS, I thought I had deleted this thread but it popped up and I didn't see it until my time to edit it had lapsed. This is the image to go with the title.

It's a pastel, 16 by 20 inches on sanded paper.

You pilots can tell He's high and wide, overshooting the turn to final. Alas I had to make him a poor pilot to get everything I wanted into the composition.

Thank you Shadwell. I've quit using the dusties (soft pastels) and have taken up oil pastels.

Tricky perspective in that one Hal - nicely handled. The contrasted red and green works well.

I like that one - something very real about it. Lack of detail works in its favour, gives a feeling of motion.
