Lovely work with the media used, very soft and gentel.

Thank you both, only one left to post.

but you say you are not happy with how the Ark Royal turned out.................this means another picture is needed :-p

Excellent handling of coloured pencils. Not sure where you got the image to draw from, but I know one of these two pilots as a friend. "she" flew the penultimate takeoff and her boss flew the last plane off, then they did a flypast.

Thank you for the comment Crispian, how wonderful to know one of the pilots on such an historic occasion and for your friend to be able to say I was that pilot will give her after dinner conversation for years to come. There is no original image for the actual drawing the Ark Royal was from a photo of her going into Portsmouth on her final voyage. I new about the final flypast of the two Harriers so with artistic licence this was my vision of the occasion. In hindsight I now wish I had drawn it on A2 size in order to get more detail into the Ark Royal.. I hope I havent disappointed you too much. With best wishes Keith
