A very happy Christmas everyone

Messing about with a boat

I've been working on this for a while ...years, most of which were spent gathering dust on a shelf. It's a WWII Vosper MTB (motor torpedo boat)
Anyway, while my brain is refusing to get inspired about painting, it's back in the frame so.
Most recently I've been working on a midships gun platform. As the war went on they gained more effective anti aircraft protection, and general armaments...
I am guessing the star was added to them in 1944 as protection from any trigger happy flyboys mistaking them for Geman S-Boots. below are a few shots from the early stages of building this model.

A lot more work still needed!

It's been a while...Nothing new there, then. I've recently been doing some illustration work for a friend for a book she's writing and getting on with a book of my own about an Otter...


This is a colour version


The story is written and I have a large number of roughs to be turned into finished artwork. Things like this...

Catch Up...

Finally managed to recover my account so I thought it about time I caught up with myself. It's been a busy year... Even managed some artwork. Mostly based on the Isle of Wight where we now live. Most of these are watercolour with a few exceptions. Now that the weather is gradually warming up, I'll be able to paint in the garage or outside, which means more oils!
