As promised, some close-ups of my finished Spitfire. I say finished…. but I keep spotting little annoying bits that aren’t quite right, like the line of rivets that are too close to the edge of the cockpit door (see below). While I always enjoy looking at the finished artwork (it’s always a time for a small celebration after all the intensive work), I usually hold back from doing custom commissions for a week or so while I live with the artwork. It’s this time of reflection that invariably and annoyingly reveals errors not previously spotted. But this is all part of the process and ensures that customers get a truly considered piece of artwork.
The beauty of working digitally is that while I still very much use traditional drawing and painting skills, editing mistakes is so much more effective than when working with paint! The rivet problem can be sorted cleanly and effectively in a matter of seconds due to the way my images are built.
Limited edition prints of ‘West Borneo I’ will be available from next week. As usual, each signed print is 65 cm long, and limited to 20 prints. Each print retails at £60.
Of course, a custom version of this artwork is also available. Please contact me for a no obligation quote.
