Love Art "Cheshire CATh" by 

Aircraft have always been adorned with the Pilot’s girl friend/ wife’s name in some form or other.
I was experimenting to find the best style of nose art and lettering for a college project (1999/2000 term final piece Art and Design Degree Foundation) about a film on Group Captain Lord Lenard Cheshire VC, CO of 617 Sqdn of Dambuster fame. ie “Dambusters 2”.
Mustang HB837 AJ-N (N for Nut.)
This is the only painting I’ve done in Gouache. A4 size paper.
A 2nd, more detailed and refined version on the noseart painted on metal.

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.

    Nice ideas – to my knowledge Mustang HB837 AJ-N had no distinctive markings – but it should have! I like it!

  • This was for a college project of a make-believe film called “Dambuster 2”.
    Cheshire’s P51, had D-Day stripes on the upper wing but not on the flap. Merry Xmas
