Re: Search & Rescue Sea King in oils

I revisited the port undercarriage today using a combination of (layer) painting and glazing. This is a technique I have not done before; and it was an enjoyable experience. Obeying the fat over lean rule the paint included a little linseed oil and the glaze off the shelf glazing medium. The photograph is disappointing as the yellow on the port wheel is not as prominent as the photograph would have you believe.

Re: Search & Rescue Sea King in oils

If I am going to entitle this painting "Royal Ascent" I suppose that I need Prince William to be flying it. I am unsure as to the protocol of an impromptu royal portrait, but armed with a magnifying glass and a very small brush, that is what is happening at the moment. Other than the pilots, i will be putting a crewman in the door and very soon the oil painting will be finished.

Re: Search & Rescue Sea King in oils

'Royal Ascent' depicting an RAF Search & Rescue Sea King helicopter as flown by Prince William during his RAF service. The crew are now done and so now the only missing element to this painting is a few walkers on the pathway below. A productive weekend will see it finished although there is also a little glazing outstanding on the windscreens that I cannot do until todays layers are touch dry. Oil paint on canvas 36" x 24".

Best yet Chas!
The pilots look like they're saying "I thought you were flying it"
