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 Original Painting – Bats out of Rabaul

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

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 Whitley painting and prints

whitleyframed

I’ve just completed this new painting of the lovely old Armstrong Whitworth Whitley.  I was lucky to meet several ex-Whitley aircrew over the years and always wanted to pay tribute to them in a painting.  As they were almost all based in Yorkshire with 4 Group, I decided that a landing scene over the Yorkshire moors would be appropriate and wintry weather would reflect the ops that they carried out throughout the winter of 1940.

The 30″ x 16″ original is now for sale and prints can be pre-ordered now for despatch on 24th February.  For more details on the original please click on the painting.  For more details of prints, CLICK HERE.

New Original Painting Ju52

 

 

..and finally after a busy Christmas and New Year period, I’m back at the easel trying to catch up with a few commissions. Here’s the first, depicting Junkers Ju52s of IV./KG.z.b.V.2, based at Breslau-Gandau, dropping incendiary bombs over Warsaw on 25 September 1939. This will be used on the cover of a forthcoming Osprey book on Ju52 Units. As far as my addled memory can work out, I think this is only the second time I’ve ever painted this wonderful old aircraft, the first time being over 20 years ago!
The original HAS JUST SOLD – one hour after posting, click on the image for more details;
