Blackbird. Altitude and Speed Record.

You have done a really good painting of the aircraft and the mountains in the background Denise . The mountains have a really good texture to them and look very icy. The aircraft look very good and you have used your colours well to suggest the shape of the fuselage. Modern aircraft as difficult to sketch or paint but you have done a good job of it. The aircraft does look like I’d flying about the mountain range .

Like the way you have achieved the feel of jagged mountains and the contrast with the sleek shape of the aircraft. Nice painting, Denise.

I like the way you have sculpted your mountains with the paint - they look great.

Great acrylics work, excellent brush and knife marks, Denise.

Good work, Denise. I like the treatment of the mountains, confidently done.

Fantastic painting Denise well done.

Thanks for your wonderful comments Paul, Ron, Sarah, Kwok, Lewis and Carole. I think this must be my favorite.

Great mountains, the texture you have created is spot on

Excellent painting Denise.

I like the composition 👍!
