Someone who saw my crumpled paper version of the B-17 commissioned me to paint this.  I had to use acrylics to get it done in time for Christmas.  It is 8 x 10" on canvas panel.


I have 24-hours before it goes in the mail.  Anything I need to tweak?

aloha

Nice picture Mea, maybe give the propellers a bit of a blur to show movement?

Hi, mea.  Someone is really going to enjoy this painting!   :clap: :clap:


I found two possible rweaks.  The one dark spot under the cloud looks a little out of place in the sky, and the inner engine on the plane‚Äôs left side looks lower than the other three engines.

Thanks, Mysti.  Unfortunately, the painting is already packaged.  Even worse, though, I found a much better reference photo which shows that inside engine much more clearly.  Maybe after Christmas, I will paint it and send a better one.

That is my luck.  Always a bit late.  :doh:  It is a small thing anyway.  The painting is fantastic! No need to change it. They will love it.   :flight:
