Tornado of 617 SQN

I have today completed this commission. I really enjoyed doing it. It is Coloured Pencils on St Cuthberts Mill paper Sanders Waterford ( traditionally made paper but is also archival quality).

One of the battle honours the 617 Squadron in the last war was destroying a vital damn, hence the squadron is affectionately known as the ' Dambusters '. Sadly the squadron was disbanded on its 70th anniversary in 2013. This painting commemorates this anniversary.
