    Camo doesn’t matter, since it was changed constantly in those days – it’s still a beauty.

    A fantastic image Dennis! Vibrant colours…………I like the contrast between the simple lines of the plane and the abstract sky.

  • Thank you very much Margaret :)
    The contrast between foreground and background is noticeable in all my art : acrylic paintings, pencil & coloured pencil drawings, vector drawings and even photography (my style perhaps :)
