Wow! Do you paint while traveling on location? I would think painting those landscapes would give you peace.

Dredged up this old thread because I wanted to add some more of my artwork per a PM that the O.P., and I shared.....

This is a picture that I finally got around to taking of a squadron patch that I made myself. It is acryllic on leather. It is a unit patch from the 324th Bomb Squadron. The same squadron that the famous "Memphis Belle" was assigned to.

I had it sewn onto my very expensive A2 jacket. I must assume the seamstress to have been drunk.....This explains why I wrote in my previous post that I am reserved to paint on this jacket myself. It doesn't need anymore messing up.....But I guess this just adds "character".

I used to do pencil sketches. Never developed a talent with paint.

Sorry for the bad image, my scanner kept cutting off the picture.

[emoticon] I tend to work from photos I have taken on trips, etc. However, I am getting "stuff" ready to do some on location work if staying in a spot for a time.

Yes, I believe painting does give me peace. Thanks for writing.


[emoticon] Engineer, nice sketch, very engineer-like, precise, clean lines. Very nice. I do not work much in pencil/drawing, except for real sketches which are quickly done, mainly without shading. Yours is more of a rendering than a sketch. Wouldn't be a big leap to start adding color, then more on to paint. [emoticon] Ooophs, the old art teacher in me is getting out. [emoticon]

Thanks for sharing.

As if you couldn't tell by the B-17 in my signature, one of the spill-over interests of mine are WWII nose art. If anyone appreciates TRUE artistic talent, there is a wealth to be seen in WWII aircraft nose art. Some of these renderings were truly works of art. Sadly, just a few months after the end of WWII, 99.9% of these nose artworks, and thier aluminum canvases were thrown into smelting furnaces all across the U.S.

I have some drawings/sketches that I did of nose art, and squadron patches. If I get time I will see if I can scan some of those and post them as well.

I had a ph# of a lady from my local area that was going to paint a nose art picture of a B-17, with a scantly clad lady figure on my A-2 leather bomber jacket, but I lost her #, and cannot remember her name.

It takes a little skill to paint on leather, and make it stick. Acrylics work the best. If only I could paint, er I should say if only I had the nerve to ruin a $1,000.00 bomber jacket.....

Engineer9860, very good job painting, pity the stitching is off in places. Looks like you skill is pretty good painting on leather.

As you said, all the blemishes are what makes the authentic jackets and nose and tail art have such neat "character".
