Top Gun 1980s, Pilot in pencil by 

I asked an ex police artist to finish this drawing for me as I was having trouble with depicting his excellent teeth.
You know him as Jan Szymczuk
Featured in Shameless Self-Promotion 23 August 2011

That’s why he is wearing his oxygen mask in the final painting below!!LOL

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.
