New original painting – Kiwis over Rabaul

KiwisoverRabaul1200logo

I’m just in the middle of painting three illustrations for a forthcoming Osprey book on the Rabaul campaign.  Here’s the first depicting an RNZAF P-40 about to collide with a Japanese Zero during a combat on 17 December 1943.  The painting is based upon the Japanese pilot’s account and shows the P-40 as being the one flown by F/O J O McFarlane, (who was lost in this combat), although it’s difficult to be 100% certain that it was his aircraft involved.

The 22″ x 15″ original painting on artboard is now for sale, please click on the image for more details.

New 25th Anniversary Colour Brochure Now Available

 

Having spent 25 long and enjoyable years as a professional aviation artist, I thought it would be a nice idea to produce a large souvenir catalogue to include not just my latest prints but also most of the older ones that I’ve worked on since 1991.  It was quite a task, sourcing and scanning old transparencies, and then grouping them into some sort of sensible layout, but the final result has just been delivered, and they look great!   16 pages, A4, full colour throughout with various sections on RAF WWII, Dambusters, WWI, RAF Bomber Command etc.  In total there are around 120 prints featured ranging from the Fe2b to the F-16.

To receive a FREE copy of this brochure, simply place an order for any print or original via the website, we’ll be sending them out with each order as from today.

Continuing with the ‘spring cleaning’ of the website, I’ve updated the Originals section, removing all the sold items and re-organising the remaining paintings.  They are now ordered in a more logical fashion for browsing.  I’ve also taken the opportunity to reduce the prices of some of the older paintings and put the three Japanese Osprey covers on ‘sale’ so do have a look through to see if anything takes your fancy!  Click on the painting for more details.
