My main interest is painting Aviation Art.
I get a lot of enjoyment researching the historical background behind the picture I’ve been commissioned to paint.
I work in acrylic on my big paintings on canvas board but use water colors, pastels, soft and oil, for smaller pieces.
I also enjoy doing pet portraits in soft pastels on tinted paper, from photographs. Ideal presents for Xmas and birthdays.

    An excellent paining, Neil. Lots of work gone into this – as I know!
    Suitably tuned up with photo filters. I think this magenta tinge is my favourite. The complementary red and blue, seem more harmonious to me.

  • Thanks Colin
    It was Bob that tune the colours. I usually use a limited pallette in my paintings
    Cheers Neil
