Captain Woodie by Woodie

Currently unavailable for purchase

Self portrait based on my mock up of Captain Picard, in pastel on A4 paper.
How Captain Woodie came about.
I shaved my head in a self portrait painting using PaintShopPro and put Captain Jean-Luc Picard’s tunic top over my shirt. Added some stars in the background.
PS Patrick Stewart made a Knight (Sir) in todays New Years Honours List. 31 Dec 2009

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.

    Excellent work Neil

  • Thanks Barry, I’ve been off line for a couple of days and I’m just catching up. I got a Trojan and had to call in my computer expert to delete it. Blinking expensive. I hope you are keeping well. Cheers
