American Beauty - Waco UPS-7
Waco UPS-7 at Panshangar Aerodrome Art Print by Aviation Artist Richard Wheatland
Inspiration for this painting was taken from sketches and photographs taken by myself at a Vintage Fly-in event at the Panshanger Aerodrome, near Welwyn, Hertfordshire, just to the North of London in 2012.
was attracted by the wonderful period colour scheme and intricate reflections
under the top wing. Painted as a lone subject on a fairly simple background,
the painting is predominantly green and too many different greens in a painting
is not ideal. I’ve tried to keep within the same range of greens even in my
rendition of the grass.
