    Alcan Pioneer

    It's been a while since I completed anything in Artrage and a couple of years since I've done an aviation painting. Here's a painting that I just completed, done as a value\color study for an acrylic painting to follow. A photo mapping Beech F-2 of the 1st Photographic Squadron flies over the rugged terrain of the Saint Elias mountain range in Alaska. The F-2s mapped the route of the Alcan Highway, which opened the way to supply the airfields of the Lend Lease routes to Russia during WWII.

    Awesome painting, really love the white Alaska mountains as background, that reflects the richness colors of the Beech F-2.

    Thanks Robyn, operated, coops, Alexandra and pai! The mountains in Alaska are beautiful, but somewhat intimidating to fly over since there are a lot of verticals and not too many flat spaces (just in case you might need one ).

    Thanks sabena, this was a very enjoyable project from the first research to the actual painting process. The mountains and glaciers proved to be an ideal backdrop for the colors of the aircraft.

    Thanks Kenmo, more will follow, but I'm slow as molasses
