Still yet to paint the fuselage and add the whites to the distant clouds, but it's getting there, albeit very slowly. Been rather busy in the hospital these past weeks so progress is painstakingly slow.

Loing good so far. What is the size and medium used?

It looks nicely set up . I like the positioning and scale of the Mustang . The background looks good too.

Mark you're doing a fantastic job.

Thanks guys. Guess I can't take full credit for the composition though. It's based on a photograph and, after careful thought, I decided against meddling with the composition - mostly as it's an exercise of mine.

It's Acrylic on a 24x20 inch (approx) canvas, so considerably larger than the original. I've had to make up a lot of details, particularly in the background.

Mark - She looks great!! I've always said - the mustang doesn't have bad side ... :thumbsup:

She certainly doesn't. Very stunning aircraft. Probably why I put off painting a Spitfire to paint this one :thumbsup:

I too look forward to its completion. How any of you chaps paint these things so quickly I'll never fathom.

Sorry chaps, I moved the image when I created a new Facebook page for my art. Will fix asap.

Looks great, Mark! Is the Oct 25th post the most recent on FB?

It is, though the image on Facebook is now also outdated, as I've started on the fuselage details.

Will have to update it soon.
