New print coming soon

Blackburn Buccaneer S.2, Lake District.

I’m very pleased to say I’ve had a great response to this picture so I’ve decided to go ahead with making a limited edition print run of 100 copies. They should be ready by mid-October so I’ll post details once they are available.

Painting accepted into G.Av.A. summer exhibition

I’m pleased to say that my latest painting has been accepted into the forthcoming Guild of Aviation Artists’ Annual Exhibition at the Mall Galleries in London. The exhibition runs from the 22nd-28th July, 2019, see the Guild website for details.

Entitled ‘Motorway Trials’ it shows Jaguar GR.1 XX109 (piloted by test-pilot Tim Ferguson) landing on the M55 near Blackpool on 26th April, 1975 to demonstrate the new aircrafts’ rough field capabilities. 30 x 20 inches oil on canvas.

New website published

Happy to report (not sure who to…!) that my new website is now up and running. Now I’ve got the hang of WordPress (recommended by the way) I should be able to develop and improve the site as I go along. Next big event is the Guild of Aviation Artists’ submission day in May so hopefully I’ll be able to share some news soon about this year’s submission/s.

Progress

After a bit of a slow start I’m starting to get to grips with WordPress, so my new site is making progress. I’ve put together a Gallery of my recent work which I will expand as time allows. Next will be a Work in Progress (WIP) for my latest Buccaneer painting.
Cheers, Simon
