If you practice enough at anything you will have break thru moments, this painting represents mine.
My daughter didn’t like the background in my first Curtis painting and urged me to do a second. Finally I gave in. In doing my second Curtis Hawk I felt more comfortable knowing all of it’s components, so I focused more on shading, detail and bringing it to life. I also spent a little extra time on the clouds. The painting took about two days, but in the end I was very pleased. I hope you enjoy it. This is an acrylic on canvas, 18X20.
This is a break thru for me, my best plane painting to date. Wish you could see it in person, the clouds are really bright and almost shine, plus the colors on the plane are more vivid.
