Another Rare Dambuster print added

Still going through our old print drawers in the UK studio I came across this today which is a mint condition copy of Dambusters! signed by Flt Lt George Chalmers DFC DFM who was wireless operator on Bill Townsend’s crew.    As far as I remember George signed around 50-100 of these prints back in 1997, he passed away in 2002.  They sold out very quickly of course and I haven’t seen one in years.  We only have this one copy so if you’re interested don’t delay.  Click on the image for more details.

New Rare Items Added

I’m in the UK studio for a few days so we’re taking the chance to have a bit of a stock-take.   We’ve found a few rare prints during the reorganisation so I’ve uploaded them to the Special and Rare Items section of the website.  Most are rare veteran signed prints from many years ago so stock is extremely limited.  One of the things we found was this remarqued Presentation Copy of Dambusters – The Opening Shots.  This print sold out years ago so this is a very rare example, signed by Ray Grayston.  Click on the print to see all the rare items.

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.

Original Painting page updated

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.

 

Condor Original Sold

Just a quick update to confirm that we have now sold the Fw200 original painting.  The prints will be published on 22nd April along with the third painting in my Battle of Britain trilogy depicting Me109s in combat with Spitfires.  More details in the next few days.

Research in Tromsø

Just back from a great week in Tromsø, gaining inspiration for more paintings of my favourite part of the world.  Whilst there we went chasing the Northern Lights and were rewarded with a spectacular display on the night of 2nd February.  The light-show lasted for over an hour and was quite awe inspiring, despite the -16C temperatures!

OK, so Prince Harry has copied my idea for a Christmas card!  Asia, Kasia, Szymek and I wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.  This photo was taken when we visited the legendary Battle of Britain ace Wg Cdr Tom Neil back in November, a wonderful memory for all of us from 2015.
