Do you have a relative who served as crew during the war? Maybe you have a photo of them in uniform, lined up with the rest of their crew, or would like a scene depicting a particular mission showing their aircraft in action.
I receive many requests to paint scenes featuring WWII aircraft/crew where a family relative was a crew member.
It's a great way of paying tribute to their contribution and service during the war and brings those memories and stories to life in a painting that will be cherished and passed down through future generations.
Anything is possible when it comes to your painting. For example, you may have a photo of the crew, but they're not infront of their aircraft; or maybe they are infront, but too close and you'd also like to see the aircraft with noseart and markings.
Here is an original photo I worked from and then the painting I created, with crew still infront of their B-17 "The Noble Effort"; but panned back to include more of their aircraft.
Further examples of paintings and the original reference photos....
I can also create collage style scenes where the relative/family member is depicted as a larger portrait within the painting. Here are two examples....
I dedicate the same high level of detail to each of my projects; with a variety of sizes to suit different budgets.
