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.

    Hi Neil, I really like this. Lots of fine detail, can almost feel the crew walking out of the painting.

  • Hi Bob
    It’s was very carefully researched even down to which flying boots different aircrew wore. This photo is not the best I’m afraid.
    Cheers neil
