Inspiration for this project was the BT-13A that I saw at March AFB -- one of nine different Valiants I have seen in museums and airshows. I had started painting and suffered a hard drive failure that cost me a ton in loss of files, stress and ultimately a chunk of $$$ to get a partial recovery. The in-progress psb file was among the salvaged portions of the disk, so I picked up where I had left off five months earlier. I suppose one of the advantages of painting with digital paint brushes rather than oils is that the paint never "dries". The digital painting was created at 500ppi to be output
Inspiration for this 2019 project was the GeeBee replica built as the QED II by a local aviator, its completion just months before he lost his battle with cancer. The beautiful plane was awarded recognition during its debut at OshKosh and I had the opportunity to photograph it during an airshow at nearby Paine Field. The digital painting was created at 500ppi to be output as giclee prints to fit 10x20-inch frame. Some personal points of interest include the polished propellers and radial engine, massive struts on the main landing gear, colorful scheme and the rigging. H
Here's a project I did a couple years ago, as a gift for a fellow race photographer who spent his share of time in the Hell Hole of a Skyraider. As I looked through my personal reference shots I discovered I had seen one in the same VAW-11 markings displayed at March AFB so with minimal adjustments it could represent one of the airframes he flew on. My digital painting is made for giclee prints to fit a 10x20" frame at 500dpi. Here are a few cropped areas that show the level of detail a little better. - - - -
