New Original Added, Dornier Do24T-3

Just completed the latest cover painting for Osprey. It depicts a Dornier 24T-3 of 2.Seenotstaffel based at Schellingwoude, just east of Amsterdam, coming under attack by Spitfires of 402 Sqn about 65 miles east of Great Yarmouth whilst on a Search and Rescue mission on Friday 8 October 1943. The German crew stood little chance against four Spitfires and were shot down into the sea shortly afterwards with no survivors.
There aren’t many paintings of this lovely flying boat so I decided to paint it in a landscape format on artboard twice the normal size of Osprey covers so that I could include the entire aircraft, the book cover will show just the centre section.  The original is now for sale, just click on the image for more details.
