Available to buy on…

The British army’s SAS used pink camouflage on the Land Rover 4×4 “jeeps” when in the desert.

You wouldn’t think that this bright pink paintwork would be good camouflage but I did see this in Libya in the mid 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.

    Sorry for missing your comment 2 months ago. You wouldn’t think that this bright pink paintwork would be good camouflage but I did see this in Libya in the mid 1960s.
