Artwork Description

Hi everyone, hope you like this. I tried hard to make it look believable, although when I'd finished I had serious doubts that aircraft type cockpits would really be a good idea on a tank type vehicle.... Hopefully there made of super bullet-proof glass LOL!.... Thanks for looking!

It's very much impossible to find fault in your work, Matt, your attention to detail is staggering and the realism of the piece is a joy to behold! Smile

Hi Malcolm, thank you so much.... I sort of struggled a little with this. As you know I do like photorealism but stopped short of painting every nut and bolt as sometimes what is implied is more effective. If that make sense!!

Hi Rita, thanks for your comment. You mentioned the lighting in this. It was actually great fun because you can just pop in a spotlight wherever you fancy. Hopefully your eye starts bottom left and is lead up through the hangar leaving you slightly dazaled by the light from outside. Hopefully!!

Thanks Ken..... I found working up from black really helped.... Like slowly turning the lights on! I find it a useful technique in a lot of paintings I do.

This is superbly realistic, and so detailed, and the lighting is brilliant.
