RAF Rescue helicopter at Hurn Aircraft Museum, Bournemouth Airport.
The Westland Wessex is a British turbine-powered version of the Sikorsky S-58 “Choctaw”, developed under license by Westland Aircraft (later Westland Helicopters), initially for the Royal Navy (RN), and later for the Royal Air Force (RAF). The Wessex was built at Westland’s factory at Yeovil in Somerset. First saw service in the 1960s.

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.
