New Osprey painting – Stirling Sunset

 

 

Just completed the latest cover art for Osprey featuring one of my favourite aircraft the mighty Short Stirling.  It was quite a challenge fitting it into such a small and vertical format space, but I think it works!  It depicts Stirlings of 7 Sqn returning from a daylight raid to La Pallice on 23 July 1941.  The original is now for sale, for more details CLICK HERE.

New painting – Spitfires over Dunkirk

I’m currently working on a very interesting project based around the RAF Fighter Command operations over Dunkirk.  The first painting is entitled Spitfires over Dunkirk and is about half-way finished at the moment.  It should be finished on 14th August when I’ll be flying over to England to get it scanned and published as a limited edition print.   In the meantime, here’s part one of two showing the progress so far…

 

New Osprey Book Cover Painting

 

I completed this one just before we went on holiday last month but have only now had time to post details on the website.  It’s for a forthcoming book, Allied Jet Killers of WWII, and depicts Maj George Bostwick of the 56th FG in his P-47 Thunderbolt ‘”Devastatin’ Deb”, shooting down an Me 262 taking off from Parchim airfield on 25th March 1945.

The original 15″ x 11″ painting is now for sale, please click HERE for more details.

Look out for details of an exciting new Dunkirk Spitfire canvas coming soon!

New Dunkirk book

I’ve not been behind the easel much recently, partly because of a three week holiday in the UK but mainly because I’ve been working very hard on co-authoring a new book on the air-war over Dunkirk.   The final result has just been delivered and it looks great.  It’s a 192 page, colour throughout, account of RAF Fighter Command operations over the Dunkirk evacuation.  It really was a fascinating project to work on and has given me plenty of inspiration for new paintings, watch this space…

In the meantime, have a look at this quick video that I made to launch the book this week.  It’s now in stock and available to buy.  Click HERE for more information.
