New Lancaster painting – Timelapse part one

 

At this time of year I usually try to clear a slot in my schedule for a ‘seasonal’ scene, inspired by the low sun and autumn/winter hues all around us.  These invariably end up being Bomber Command subjects as the bleak airfields tend to suit winter scenes whereas fighters tend to feel more at home in summer skies!

So I’m half-way through this year’s painting.  It’s another Lancaster at dispersal but this one will be ready to go, props turning, chocks away and bomb doors closed.  Here’s a short video of progress so far using timelapse and conventional film, the painting should be complete by 16th November so look out for the second part after then along with details of prints etc.  Incidentally, I’m planning to keep the Lanc pretty generic as you can’t see the squadron codes, but if any collector fancies the original I’d be happy to add specific markings/nose art to suit.  Canvas size is 44″ x 20″.  Just get in touch via the Contact Us link above.
