View Full Version : German Sunset

07-15-2013, 02:12 PM
Finished this one last night. Aircraft idea was from digital images from some web site. Decided to make the background a forrest and sunset and for the sunset use the German flag colors because of the aircraft. The colors lined up in the correct order. The aircraft are lighted differently because of the different altitudes.http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/15-Jul-2013/899862-German_Sunset_0.jpg

Love the detail on that Albatross and utilising the German Flag colours for the sunset is a nice touch in my opinion, a touch of genius even. Nice job :)

An interesting idea to use the German flag as a background. The Albatrosses look good.

Thank you. I had to check the flag before I started to be sure of the order of colors.

Thanks. They are fun to paint. Next up on my easel is a C-7 Caribou.

What colours for the Caribou? We had some great coloured ones up here in Canada. Much better than army green!
