View Full Version : Joe Foss

I have been a member here for a while and I hadn't known about the aviation art forum here either! I posted this Joe Foss WIP on a different forum and since I would like to get back to doing some aviation related work (after much personal upheaval and life trials) I'll post it here and begin some new work to follow.

After seeing the great Roy Grinnell's fabulous portrait of Joe Foss, I wanted to do one as well. I love the Pacific theatre subjects since we see so many Spits and Stangs, not that there is anything wrong with them. When I came across a great reference of a Wildcat, albeit in black & white, I couldn't resist trying my own portrait of Joe. The shots were taken with a basic digital camera so the colour isn't consistent on them. Oil Pastel on cold press Canson board.
