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.
