DC-3 in Pan American livery, 10x25 digital painting

Recommended Posts

When the art muse is pushing you along, just keep moving forward and enjoy the ride. I put the final touches on a couple hours ago, having started it on Saturday evening (four quick days, working around family activities and holiday shopping)


My family has strong roots with Pan American Airlines, so this gorgeous DC-3 in Pan Am livery has always been a favorite of mine to photograph at Northwest events while it was based at Paine Field, including during final preparations before departure to France for the 75th anniversary of the D-Day invasion.





This digital painting was made to fit 10x30 at 500ppi, and at some point early in the new year I will have a giclee print made to hang over our Pan Am memorabilia collection.


Here are a few cropped areas that show the level of detail a little better.


















Out of curiosity, I tallied the galleries on my website and this is the 29th vintage aircraft in my portfolio, which also includes 24 paintings featuring Northwest racers. Fun to see how far the new projects have come from my early works just a few years ago.


Enjoy! and thank you for looking...
