Introducing leggings. You’ll never run out of inspiration.

1966 Zambia Sgt RAF by Woodie

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

I’ve started using my Xmas present early. I treated myself to a Colour Slide Scanner.
This is me sitting outside our ops tent in Lusaka Airport in Zambia. I was there after Ian Smith, PM of Rhodesia declared UDI in November 1965 and this was in 1966.

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.

    I was thinking more of George Lazenby than Sean Connery…but now you mention it, you’re a cross between the two! Happy New year to you too Neil!
