Black Horse over Bamburgh now Framed


Whilst I was over in the UK last week I took the opportunity to get the Black Horse over Bamburgh original canvas framed.  The prints are proving very popular following our recent advert in Flypast so I thought it would be interesting to show the difference in size between the original and the prints.  The original canvas is 40″ x 20″ so the overall framed size is approx 46″ x 26″.  The prints have an overall size of 28″ x 17″.   Prints and original canvas are still available, click on the image for more details.

Kent Battle of Britain Museum book/print launch


The weather really smiled on us today at the Kent Battle of Britain Museum, so we spent the day outside signing prints and books and meeting some old friends.

Lined up for a ‘team’ photo are L-R, myself, John Vasco, Dennis Knight, Nigel Parker and Simon Parry.

Thanks to everyone who came along, we hope you enjoyed it!

Spitfires into Battle original sold

I’m delighted to say that we’ve just sold the large Spitfires into Battle original canvas, which followed up on the sale of the smaller ‘Chinese Aces’ original at the weekend.  The larger canvases do tend to sell quickly, which is why they rarely appear on the website for very long, but the  ‘Black Horse over Bamburgh’ original canvas is still for sale, click HERE for details.

New Osprey painting


My latest Osprey book cover painting is now online and available for sale.  It depicts the rarely painted Kawanishi N1K2-J Shiden-Kai knocking big chunks out of a Corsair on 22 June 1945.  Amazingly, the Corsair managed to get back to base with most of the port wing missing!  For more details click on the image.

These 15″ x 11″ Osprey cover original paintings continue to prove popular with collectors, thanks to their affordable price and ‘easy to find space for’ size.  Today we sold the Chinese Aces original depicting a Curtiss Hawk III over the Sun Mausoleum.  To see all the originals that are left for sale, please CLICK HERE.

New Original Painting

The Black Horse over Bamburgh

The Black Horse over Bamburgh

I’ve just completed a new original canvas titled ‘The Black Horse over Bamburgh’ depicting Spitfire P8148 ‘The Black Horse’ which was purchased for the RAF by the employees of Lloyds Bank in 1940.  I’ll post a Work in Progress on this painting shortly, although some of you may have already been following it on my Facebook page.

Prints will be available in a couple of weeks, the large original canvas (40″ x 20″) is now for sale, negotiable around £6000.   If you are interested, please just get in touch via the ‘Contact Us’ link above, or directly via email mark (at)

A new Blenheim painting



I’ve been lucky enough to work with many RAF Squadrons over the years but my first was 30 Squadron when I was commissioned to record its 75th Anniversary in paint way back in 1990.  Twenty-five years later I’m now very proud to be an honorary member of the 30 Squadron Association and it seemed only right that I contributed something to 30′s Centenary.   A few months ago I completed a painting of a Hercules climbing out of Kabul for the current squadron and now I’ve just completed this, which depicts the Squadron’s first combat and loss of WWII on 13th July 1940 when three Blenheims intercepted three SM79s over the British Mediterranean Fleet, losing one crew in the action.  We’ll be producing prints within a couple of weeks so I’ll post more details when I have them.
