New Osprey Original Painting – He177s over London

 

 

Having just completed the design work on Luftwaffe Crash Archive Vol 11 covering Operation Steinbock, it was a real pleasure then to be commissioned to paint the mighty He177 for Osprey’s forthcoming book on the type.  I knew exactly what I wanted to do and convinced the author to trust me on it!  The result is shown here, a couple of He177s over London, with fires, smoke, searchlights and flak all adding to the drama of the scene.  An ideal set of elements for any aviation artist which I think has resulted in one of my strongest Osprey covers to date.  The original painting is now for sale, click HERE for more details.
