Well, it's been a little while since my last post, as I've been away to Austria on Holiday. Back now, feeling refreshed and back into the painting. This painting has been gestating in my mind for some time now, and I've been chomping at the bit to get home and create it. It is 'Armed and Dangerous', watercolour, 50 x 33 cm:
The painting shows two Typhoon F2s of the RAF's 6 Sqn, based at RAF Lossiemouth, on Quick Reaction Alert duty over the North Sea. Recently, there have been several QRA scrambles of Typhoons to intercept Russian aircraft approaching UK airspace without permission and these aircraft have gone up to intercept and escort the intruders clear. This, together with my thinking that the Typhoon is a gorgeous-looking aircraft, made this painting irresistible for me! I'm sure it won't be the last painting of Typhoons that I do, so watch this space! I'm really enjoying my aircraft paintings at the moment, but I won't be neglecting the landscapes either...!
