A tribute to the young pilots of WW11 who died too early in the conflict to become heroes and household names. My print depicts Spitfire Mk.1a's flying in vic formation, a format that proved inflexible and ineffective. Pilots had to quickly change mental gear at a moments notice to engage in aerial combat. The aircraft show no markings numbers or letters reflecting the anonymity of the young pilots.
A sky photographed above my cottage in Lincolnshire was used for the backdrop. The sky in this painting was always going to be a very important element of the image, and has been in its own right, the reason clients have purchased the print.
