P51 Cheshire CATh noseart by 


This is the only painting I’ve done in Gouache. A4 size.
I was experimenting to find the best style of nose art and lettering for a college project.
Cheshire is Group Captain Lord Lenard Cheshire VC of 617 Sqdn of Dambuster fame.
Featured in PERMANENT FEATURED ART GALLERY Painters’ Universe 3 March 2012

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.

    Excellent Painting Neil !!!
    i like to use gouache its gives a better depth of colour than plain watercolour.

  • Thanks guys but I think I’ll combine the lettering from the top one with the figure from the bottom one!!
    Cheers Neil

    Nice one Neil – how did you find using Gouache?

  • Not easy Spencer so I’m sticking to acrylic.
    I may of been using the wrong paper, in fact I painted this on white cardboard which I hadn’t primed.
    Cheers Neil

    Hi Neil , back after break ,loads of pics to process and lots of catching up to do . Think bottom design looks less " American" ( apologies to all US bubblers !)

  • The “Yanks” knew (or was it allowed), how to decorate their aircraft, (airplanes) more than Commonwealth Air Forces.
    Thanks for comment.
    Cheers Neil

    Brilliant Work !

  • Thanks Colin,
    People forget that W/Co Cheshire was also CO of 617 Sqdn and got his VC for completing 100 ops (not missions) so would of done over 3 tours. Flying a Mustang for target marking on his last few ops..
