Bit of tweaking same picture now on canvas.
My latest digital art attempt, purely from imagination.
This is a Photo I took in 1965 of Mount Santubong in Borneo Nr to the capital of Kuching, the picture was taken from Bako beach the mountain is about 8 miles across a bay on the South China Sea. I was stationed at Raf Kuching as an airframe fitter on Whirlwind Mk10's.
I also flew many missions as a crewman ie winchman/gunner/loadmaster, mostly the job was to make sure the chopper didn't get overloaded and become difficult to fly..(okay taking off when you are overloaded, the problem comes when you are descending and find out you are too heavy....difficult to stop!!!)
This was a recreational trip to the beach. We went there in the morning by a very fast motor boat and came back even faster as the squadron sent out a chopper to pick us up at around 4pm. Fabulous Day!!
And here is one of the Whirlwind Mk 10's of 103 sqdn on the pan at Raf Kuching. The chopper you see on the right is a Belvedere twin rotor of 66 Sqdn.
Now here is a painting I done of the same view, but the reference pic was taken quite recently.
This was created using Procreate and photoshop
As the title says wish I was there created mostly from memory of Borneo 1965. If I told you what I was doing there I would have to kill you!!. Once again created on the amazing ipad with procreate,
Yet another procreation. took a picture out of my kitchen window towards the sea then added a few bits and pieces, like changed the sky near the horizon, put in the water(the pic had my neighbours shed in it and some trees) and the navigation beacon and the rocks all from imagination.
This pic was produced with Artstudio and Procreate on the ipad, mostly from imagination, the tent was drawn from old photographs.
Just looked out of my window and saw this, so painted it on my ipad with good old Procreate.
Here is an updated version of my procreation.
Picture taken with my new (secondhand) panasonic G1 in auto bracket mode 7 images at different expsures then merged in Fotomatix using a fairly mild mix, can be really creative here and put up some very strong images.
Here is another version using same pics but different strength merge.
This is a single pic at normal exposure.
Yet another procreation
Fog on the Tyne updated (and finished)
Trevor's immaculate oil painting of his wife Patricia when she was around 6 or 7 years old ... this is one of his best.
Oils 16x 16 inches.
The beginnings of a procreate creation!
Here is the same picture turned into a watercolor in Photoshop.
