Again, thanks to each and every one who nominated an entry.  This contest is a nice opportunity for everyone to dust off their artwork and show it off at the end of the year.  That’s a good thing, because I think we would probably miss out on seeing a few of these works without the contest.  I know I enjoyed the seeing every entry.  There was a lot of first class work done this year.

The contest was great this year.  Plenty of entries and very close voting.  The only thing I can think of to make the contest better is if we could get more of the viewers to vote.  I’m hoping for more next year.

 

First Place (Tie) – Harley Copic “Checkertail P-40F” – 9 points

First Place (Tie) – Darryl Legg “Douglas Dauntless” – 9 points

Second Place (Tie) – Darryl Legg “BAC Lightning” – 8 points

Second Place (Tie) – Mark Postlethwaite “Morning Glory” – 8 points

Second Place (Tie) – Russell Smith “God of the North Wind” – 8 points

Third Place – Richard Taylor “ Tempests over Mont St Michel” – 6 points

Fourth Place – Darryl Legg “Tempest Tipping V-1” – 4 points

Fifth Place (Tie) – Andrew Dillon “Sopwith Triplane Blymp” – 3 points

Fifth Place (Tie) – Steven Heyen “Beaufighters” – 3 points

Fifth Place (Tie) – Terry Jones “Black Flight” – 3 points

Fifth Place (Tie) – Done Wilkie “Unsung Hero” – 3 points

Plenty of other entries received votes.  Here they are:

2 points:

Steven Heyen “No Way Through”

Mark Karvon “MiG Alley”

Darryl Legg “Beaufighters Over Malta”

Darryl Legg “Typhoons Dropping Bombs”

Russell Smith “God of the North Wind” Pencil Study

1 point:

Mark Karvon “Heading North”

Darryl Legg “Major G L Hollowell’s VMF-111 Corsair”

Darryl Legg “Supermarine Stranraer”

Richard Taylor “Typhoon Bridge Attack” Drawing

 

I am friends with Harley, and I’ll be sure and let him know about the results.  I can say with certainty that he will be very pleased that his work is appreciated by the collectors and artists here.  I’m in touch with Darryl too, so I’ll drop him a note about the win.  I’m sure he’ll be happy too.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

eHangar members,

Fifth year for this contest. This started as an excellent suggestion by Chris (Blueviper2). Instead of prints, we’re talking original art here.

 

First of all, a sincere thanks to all for all the entries!

It’s been a bit of a slow aviation art year in terms of major publishers and print releases, but plenty of talented artists have been very busy producing excellent work.  This contest makes a nice roundup of artist creations and collector acquisitions over the year.  I for one enjoy seeing all the great art that has been created over the course of the year.

Let’s see what makes the “Top 10 Aviation Art Originals of 2013”

VOTING STARTS NOW! PLEASE VOTE!

Decide which 3 originals you like the most, and number them from 1 to 3.

The original numbered 1 (your favorite) will receive 3 points.
The original numbered 2 will receive 2 points.
The original numbered 3 will receive 1 point.

Voting will end on January 31 as time stamped by the website.

The original that has accumulated the most points will be the top, or number 1 original of 2013. The original with the next highest collection of points will be placed in the number 2 position. It may happen that several originals may tie with the same point total. If that happens, they will share in their placement. For example, with the number 1 and 2 positions spoken for, say three originals tie for third place. Originals 3-5 are tied, will share third place, and will be listed in positions 3, 4 and 5 in alphabetical order by the artist’s last name. This will be repeated until we have selected 10 originals. There may be more than 10 originals placing if a tie situation takes up additional spots.

The winners will be posted on February 1.

Ok, I might kick this off since Fuzzy has gone to the trouble of running this once-epic contest again. I’ll start with one of my own:

1. No Way Through

I’ll think of my next two choices later…

Daz,

The main reason I started this contest again is to see what you added this year!  Great additions – thanks for entering them!  Which one is coming from South Africa?

Great contest Kurt.  Since you asked, I’d like to nominate four paintings by my favorite South African artist (and one of my favorites overall), Darryl Legg.  These paintings were added to my collection during 2013:

 

Douglas Dauntless

OK, I wanted to see Guss’ additions too!  Darryl’s going to be hard to beat.

Seems like original aviation art paintings are alive and well.  And there are still a few more to come.

My Pleasure Kurtsmile

Gus love those Darryl Legg paintings, I really do love his work, reminds me a lot of Michael Turner I think. AND hasn’t he been busy this year? Fuzzy you ask which one is on the way? Well I couldn’t leave my commission at one could I, had to be my 3 favourite aircraft……

The purchasing and shipping of this next one is proving problematic, but I’m assured it’s mine and was painted this year so eligible for entry….and in any case hope you agree worth sharing

This from Harley Copic

Wow – we have some fantastic entries this year!  It’s been a slow year for print publishers, but this year’s selection of original art is as good as any.  There are still more on the way!

Whoa!!! I’m glad to see there are other members of the Darryl Legg fan club.  Great pieces Daz (and I’m more than a little envious).  Thanks for sharing them, and entering them into the contest.  Lots of good pieces this year Kurt – it’s going to be interesting to see which pieces get the most votes.

Wish I had better photos of this one.  Darryl’s aircraft are very precise and full of detail.  I’ll work on some improved photos for a future post!
