WHO'S WATCHING WHO? FRAMED ORIGINAL ( Poem included)
Who's Watching Who? Are Aliens watching you from galaxy's near or far as you drive in your car? Some humans have close encounters as E.T,s fly around us, UFO sightings when out driving, are aliens out there thriving? Do they live among us, observing as they drive your bus? Thinking what a mess we've made, as the world heats up and the ice caps fade. Do they want to help keep us alive and teach us how we can survive? This A4 painting ( 8.3 x 11.7)is in a black box frame 12.25 x 15 x 1 inch. Please message me with your choice of border colour orange, blue or purple. It is painted on Daler Rowney 300 gram watercolour paper with St.Petersburg white nights watercolours.The poem will be printed out on coloured card and sent to you with the painting.
Harrier Over Derwentwater
Original unframed pencil drawing of a Harrier "Jump Jet" flying a low-level training sortie over Derwentwater in Cumbria. As any aircraft enthusiast knows, a beautiful piece of scenery like this can only be enhanced by the sight of a low-flying aircraft! My thanks to Ian Murdoch for the aircraft reference photograph. The background is from my own reference, inspired by watching military jets practising low flying exercises through the beautiful valleys of the Lake District. Image size 15" x 12" (380mm x 300mm) The Harrier first flew in the UK during the late 1960s and was the first V/STOL (vertical/short take off and landing) aircraft, designed to make use of small, concealed or improvised bases, such as forest clearings, without the need for long runways. The Hawker Siddeley Harrier was used by various air forces, including the RAF and USMC, while the Sea Harrier was flown from aircraft carriers while in service with the Royal Navy and the Indian Navy. A later generation was developed in the 1980s as the AV-8B in the United States and in Britain as the British Aerospace Harrier II. However, the Harrier has now been withdrawn from service with most users, to be replaced by the F-35B Lightning II. The last operational Harrier flight in the UK took place in 2010.
