Excellent. Love your sky in this!   :smitten: :yippee:


I am getting the biggest kick out of your aircraft paintings.  They remind me so much of my late Uncle Freddie's paintings.  I do not remember the details, but he used to illustrate for the newspaper.  Many years ago, we took phptos of his illustrations.  I found these three.  This is a photo of photos, so really not great but you get the idea.  Such fun and memories.

Thanks Mary Lou, what a great memory. I recognize the Red one as  the German Fokker D.V11 (The Red Baron plane 'Fokker Dr1' was tri wing) I think the yellow one is a German Albatross DIII . The Top plane is French and I think a Spad model.
Correct me if I am wrong anyone.
