How long did it take you to develop such skills with a paintbrush, Neil? I have so much to learn from you and Brian.
Beautiful sky and landscape in their own right. The planes add drama and action. Really good!
oh boy – another artist whos subject i like, and who executes them so well!
Thanks GuysA lot of chopping and changing goes into my paintings. I’d do them in half the time if I though and planned a little before I started. Still I’m quite happy with this one even thou it didn’t photo well.
Only thing missing is the sound of the engines!
masterful work woodie
Love the ol Wooden beauty.
Another lovely evocative picture
This was a commission and had great fun painting itCheers Neil
