Just to help get this new forum started off, I add one of my aviation paintings. It sold a long time ago.

I'm not a rivet counter unlike some of my aviation artist friends. I like to paint the romance of flight rather than get into the technical detail.

Let's hope we can get a lot of activity here and reward the Wet Canvas Administrators for giving us this forum.


This was one of my early acrylic paintings.

Good to see Hal - With my eyesight I can't see any damn rivets till I've got my nose down the intake anyway! Most paintings are done at a representational distance where panel lines and rivets may or may not be visible so either way works for me.
Glad to see we have been honoured with an Av Art forum at last - very welcome . Trust we can justify the faith and keep it lively.

This is nice, love the splash of colour the aircraft livery brings to the work.
