This is a small painting compared to most all of my others. It measures about 14X16 and again its acrylic on canvas and depicts a later version Nieuport, but flown by the British as the rondel on the wing indicates.
This was done as an overpaint, in other words it was a painting I picked up at the Goodwill and painted over the original to save a few bucks. Before you call me cheap, remember I’ve not really sold anything, most just sit here collecting dust. So, I still used than top quality paint and bargain canvas, because I keep myself on a tight budget. I wonder sometimes what they would look like done in good oil paint? I have to work pretty hard to bring out the colors with acrylic, sometimes layering it on 3 or 4 times.
As usual, all comments are welcome, criticism especially. This is how I learn. So, thanks for looking and I hope you enjoyed, but if not, let me know why.
Great job again Jack. I’m really drawn to the landscape where I feel like I’m sitting on a bench looking at the sun as it sets. Again, great job.
Ps. The SR-71 is hanging on a high traffic area wall at my son’s.
Thanks Peggy, that’s good to hear!
Hey Jack. do you take requests?
I’d love to see a C-119 dropping a load of jumpers.
Haven’t commented on your artwork mainly because my eyes do not work “normally” and don’t see things like other folks do. Am unable to see in 3 dimensions as those connections were never made inside my head and even after corrective strabismus surgery at age 2, I am unable to focus on a single point with both eyes. That means my primary vision shifts from one eye to another. That comes in handy when shooting as I don’t have to close one eye, and am a pretty good shot. And thanks to a great LASIK surgeon, I no longer have to wear glasses(except for the fine print).
That being said I think your artwork is GREAT, even when coming from one who is somewhat vision impaired.
