Tornado GR4A WIP

Started a 28" x 20" Acrylic on canvas painting aiming to translate a photo I took in Dunmail Raise some years ago into a piece of art with a change of back drop to a few hundred yards past the photo point of view . More "in your face " than my usual compositions . The under belly is wrong at the moment . There's a bulge out under the intakes which I haven't shown yet . Lots of detail still to add .

Re: Tornado GR4A WIP

Going, going - Gone Trumper - Well in the RAF anyway - still quite a few out there in foreign air forces . If this pic comes off well it will be essence of Tornado for me . Loved seeing them in the hills complete with the big jugs . Something slow , smooth and menacing about the way they cruised round corners then came past in a thunder of noise and breath taking speed .

Re: Tornado GR4A WIP

I has so many abstract qualities to it. Great job on the tonal values. I love it.

Thanks - I've kept the backdrop pretty sketchy as I hope to give a sense of speed. It was very tempting just to turn it into a landscape only piece the way it turned out.

Re: Tornado GR4A WIP

Virtually finished - maybe some go faster lines here and there and minor tweaks to the jet but can't do much more to this one without spoiling it I reckon. Title will be "Thunder in my Heart "
