"Training the Aces"

Focke-Wulf 190 Trainer, landing on an airfield in southern Germany

This painting started as an oil sketch when, with the Guild of Aviation Artists, I visited the RAF Museum at Hendon.

I felt it deserved to be turned into a more finished painting, so I added a generalised Bavarian background, familiar to me as we have friends in southern Germany, and an interesting sky, and here is the finished result.

It is painted in oils on an 18"x12" piece of primed hardboard (Masonite, in the US).
