Catalina reflecting

Bit of a slow couple of weeks for the Catalina but Ive had a good go over the last two evenings.
Finally made some progress on the front of the fuselage. Have to turn the canvas upside down to do the reflections... Progress finally!!

another weekend, another market

Warwick convinced me to attend a local craft market with him yesterday...
Manfeild had just about wiped out my stock so I had 14 prints printed and armed with them and a few seconds plus a couple of framed prints I toddled along.

We shared a table and I managed to sell 10 prints and Warwick about 4 or 5. What a nice surprise! also had some great conversations and might have a few more sales in the offing.. especially the Phantom guy!

Anyway, came home and decided to place the Catalina on hold for the weekend and start a new commission!
This is a Plymouth GTX Hemi. 9.6Ltrs and 800hp! What a beast and all BLACK!
Started the wheels as usual and coming along.

MG Classic Meeting Exhibition

Great weekend!
Was invited to exhibit motorsport pics at the MG Classic race weekend at Manfeild.
Four well known (I hope) motorsport artists attended. You can see their bios here...
Great complementary mix as Don does oils, Mike does gouache, I do coloured pencil and John does watercolours. Worked extremely well and we had lots of visitors pass through. I managed over the two days to sell just about all my prints I took up and one framed print (the Dawson Camaro).
This is the scene just after set up. My area is behind Mike Nidd setting up on the table.
Don's oils were super professional but very expensive!
