First effort at posting some drawings. I'll build it bit at a time if it works.

Short 184 choppy beaching

Any feedback more than welcome. RAL

First one's a bit contrasty for a pencil drawing?

That's an excellent drawing. It looks in the style from that period.

Lovely work Rob - must admit I thought the first one was ink, as it looks blue on my screen, but I really like the effect! 

 

Great drawing!

Thanks for that guys.

Afraid I have to work on the raw photo quite hard to produce a viable image .

I think pencil drawings may be at the tricky end of the spectrum.

Outdoor daylight may be better.

I'll see what I come up with.

Yeah you're right. Like an illustration for a " ripping yarn" story in one of those old Boy's Own annuals.👍

Probably into 1918, or even RAF time, those are the later wing tip floats, and a newly developed depth charge bomb mounted on the rail, and g.p.iron bombs on the concrete plinth on the beach.

The little guy beside gives some scale and an idea of the size of these aeroplanes.

Dunno what happened to the rest of my text - musta just popped over to a Parallel Universe ( I get a lot of that...)

What I said was - she's sitting on the ramp, a platform that runs on rails down the beach into the sea for launching and recovery.

I love good pencil drawings, and these are brilliant Rob. I really like your careful, subtile pencil stroke technique. Well done.

Got any more of the kind?

Loads!  I had thought about putting together an illustrated book about these planes and the circumstances.

Afraid I'm not good at getting organised for writing!

I'll try to get a few more pics uploaded

remind me of the Michael Turner book I've got.

Just this week I was looking through a book on the Luftwaffe crammed with drawings and paintings, and I think it was his work.

Is that the book you've got, or has he done more than one?

Seriously impressive body of work

'Royal Air Force, the aircraft in service since 1918' , Michael turner, Temple Press ISBN 0-600-34933-0. Foreword by Raymond Baxter.

I'll have a look around for that one.

You should try to get a look at the Luftwaffe book if you get the chance. Thanks for the details

Excellent drawings, Rob!  You have a light touch and the subjects suit your use of the pencil.  I think you ought to try a few in watercolours.  Schneider Cup racers?  My current obsession.  That Macchi Castoldi M.C. 72!  Begging to be painted or scratch built.

 

It’s really about a decision isn’t it? Do I model or do I draw and paint?

Thought I'd try to get another drawing on here. 

It's framed behind glass but it's not too bad... 

 

Beaching

I'd certainly rather be drawing these aircraft than trying to build one

More nice work Rob! I really must dust my pencils off (if I can find them!)

 

I like that drawing!

Rob,

 

Thanks for your art work which you included in my topic.  

 

Your drawings I like a lot, I hope you find more inspiration to continue. 

 

About building models, may be I'm a lucky guy, I have been drawing and painting all my life, I will have a look to show some in future.

 

So keep up the good drawing-work...👍

 

Winth kind greetings,

JohnHaa

Again, I like your clean and fragile, light stroke pencil drawings...

Looks like you sat next to them there, scetching...

I wouldn’t mind at all, having one of those on my wall...

Very nice again, Rob.

I agree with Nils about the neat style, how you have all your pencil strokes going in the same direction. I've never been disciplined enough to do that.

Lovely work.

 

Cheers Bob.
