    fab work Mike
    great to see you doing military art.
    Seeing this reminds me that all fire extinguishers are Red now. Not cream for, was it foam? shown here.
    Cheers Neila

  • Thanks Neil, I’m planning a complete series of military vehicles, mainly WWII in portrait format next year if I’m free of producing another Rose calendar.

    I think the cream extinguishers were for foam but I’ll ask my mate Norman who drove for the REME next time I see him.

    What a handsome painting this is. The purple hue in the road adds a sense of peace to the work, balancing the idiom and heft of the transport, lumbering through the farm lands.

  • Thank you Fran, this is an image for a 2012 calendar and I’ve just shot it with my own camera to see how it stacks up alongside most of my other work which is usually shot professionaly. I had the original in front of me and this enabled me to match up the tints with confidence.

    Judging by your kind comment I think I must have been sucessful!
