Hurricanes over Dunkirk

HurricanesoverDunkirk1200logo

After six long weeks this second painting in the Dunkirk trilogy is finally ready.  It depicts Hurricanes of 601, 79 and 145 Squadrons engaging 40+ Me110s directly overhead Dunkirk on the second day of Operation Dynamo, 27th May 1940.   P2568 was flown by Sir Archibald Hope on this day and he ended up having to force land on the beach just east of Dunkirk.   I’ll be posting a Work-in-Progress video in the next few days which will hopefully explain why this one took so long!  Prints and original painting are now available, click HERE for more details.

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!

B-25Rabaul1200logo

Just finished this, the second in the Rabaul trilogy for the forthcoming Osprey book on the Rabaul Campaign.  This depicts B-25s of the 499th BS keeping a tight and low formation as they are chased by Japanese fighters after a raid on Rabaul, October 1943.  The original 22″ x 15″ painting is now for sale, please click on the image for more details.

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.
