Aviation Art covers a huge spectrum of history and activities - I thought I would post some of my earlier Acrylics to show some of the civilian / exploration aspect . I have enjoyed painting all eras and aspects of aviation and continue to do so.

From top to bottom the paintings show:
1) A Boeing 747 taking off from a wet Manchester Airport
2) A Boeing 737 docked and loading at Manchester - somewhat cynical title - "Manchester - Gateway to the Sun!"
3)Singapore Airlines Boeing 747
4) A BEA Dakota from the fifties/sixties era of travel.
5) A composite of various Transatlantic "firsts" along with a commemorative Phantom crewed by Alcock and Brown in honour of the original pioneers.

Wonderful work Neil. Your work is magnificient. I especially loved to bottom piece with the history of flight (more or less). It reminded me so much of the British Airways commercial that I enjoy so much.

Thanks William,Hal and shad,
Hal - I really enjoyed doing that transatlantic composite - a bit of research all added to the knowledge . I didn't think I would be able to pull it off but I really like it now . It was painted for an exhibition commemorating aviation in the North West of England by Manchester Aviation Art Society a few years ago .
shadwell - Aye - I was being a bit unkind to Manchester with that title - I really enjoyed the years I spent working down there and kind of miss it! Very handy for exploring the Lakes ,Dales ,Peak and Wales.

Nice work! I actually saw the Alcock and Brown Phantoms lift off out of Goose Bay on their flight, along with the Victor and the Herc. Really early in the morning. Did a painting of that about a decade ago. Thanks for the memories!
