Hi again. New pencil drawing completed. Supermarine Spitfire MK1. I hope you like it. Regards.
Nice circles!...sweet as usual...
very well done, Sir
Thank you. I´m glad you like my new work. Regards.
Excellent work as usual. What is the peninsula that the Spitfire is flying over?
The Needles Lighthouse
The Needles Lighthouse.
PS: I´m glad you like it. Regards.
Good Lord! You always astound me! Until I saw the pencil I thought these were B&W photos. You have a rare talent!
Like Harolds, I too thought these were black and white photos. Excellent eye for detail and incredible dexterity. You have mastered a rare art form.
That's a beautiful image - I wish I had that talent !
( BTW, another reason I admire the drawing is that it represents the September 1940 mount of Squadron Leader Brian Lane of 19 Squadron, who wrote the famous memoir 'Spitfire !' under the pseudonym of 'B J Ellan'. Sadly, he was killed later in the war )
Hello. Thank you very much. I would like you to see a drawing face to face. The effect is better because my camera does not capture all the tones... There are unwanted reflexes. Regards.
Hello. I must say your drawings are very precise and impressive. You seem to be able to capture a specific point of time which is a very rare talent. I have been collecting limited edition signed Aviation Art for many years with a heavy hand in Battle of Britain. I went on your site and really thought your portrait of Galland was fantastic. Thanks for sharing
Hello. Thank you very much for your comment and support! Regards.

WILD DUKW, please do not take this the wrong way... your technique is very good and you have promise. But, just copying old WWII photographs is a good exercise, but is is a waste of time in the long run. If you want to be a truly be recognized as an artist - use your imagination an come up with images that no one has seen before, and we all cheer.
1. WILD DUKW is not the artist.
2. This is a unique drawing and not a copy of a WW2 photograph. You see Spitfire P9386 had an A-wing with 8×.303 mgs when she was QV-K. Yet, in the drawing, the Spit has a B or C-wing, as the 20mm cannon is clearly visible.
Thusly, This is an image no one has seen before, since QV-K was never outfitted with 20mm cannons.
