RAF Trainee Pilot

The ‘RAF Trainee Pilot’ is an oil on canvas painting I started recently. It is a combination of different images which inspired the composition. 

As a pilot, though sadly not flying anymore, I have seen beautiful landscapes passing under the aircraft wings. It is this thought which inspired me to do this painting.

The Bulldog, the aircraft in the painting, was the RAF’s trainer for many years. One of the aspects of flying which enjoyed immensely was flying slow and low. Watching the fields, rivers, farms etc. rolling by.
