Bristol Brigands

As the theme for the Guild of Aviation Artists’ 2018 Paintings of the Year exhibition (at the Mall Galleries in London) was to be the RAF’s 100th anniversary I decided to do something different. But what? After arriving at a shortlist, I overheard a conversation: the person talking was a Brigand pilot. Decision made!

I was kindly sent some personal images by the pilot and used these to form a basis for the resulting drawing. This portrays him flying the relatively unknown aircraft over Aden.
At the exhibition – where they were on display – it was so pleasing to hear the comments given to the drawing. ‘Bandits’ was much acclaimed by the pilot himself – to my great pleasure.

The piece was a close runner-up to receiving the award for the best drawing on show.

‘Bandits’ is currently available, POA.
