Welcome to this blog which is tracking the progress of my latest Gibsons Puzzle scene. You can also reserve limited edition prints here (scroll further down for details)
Both Spitfires now finished and I have marked out the land area properly ready for my next task, which is painting in Portsmouth! Basically adding every possible visible building etc working from various reference images and Google Earth. I will be leaving HMS Queen Elizabeth II and the tug boats until last.
The scene will feature Royal Navy carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth II leaving Portsmouth with two BBMF Spitfires flying overhead. Having Portsmouth as a setting is recognition of it's connections to the D-Day landings and 80th anniversary next year; bringing to the scene both modern and commemorative elements.
This is my 4th scene with Gibsons! (the first of two new Gibsons scenes I'm painting this year!) This is an extra special puzzle illustration as its going to be presented in a 'Help for Heroes' branded box and will help raise money for this worthwhile charity!
250x prints will be produced, but these won't be available until the jigsaw puzzle has been released by Gibsons, January 2024. The original painting is going to be auctioned next year and 50% of the sale price will be going to Help for Heroes.
Print sizes and prices will be decided later in the year.
