Let’s see which ones make the “Top 10 Aviation Art Prints of 2010”!

VOTING STARTS NOW! The nomination thread has been viewed over 1800 times, so if you??™ve been looking, PLEASE VOTE as well!

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

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

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

The print that has accumulated the most points will be the top, or number 1 print of 2010. The print with the next highest collection of points will be placed in the number 2 position. It may happen that several prints 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 prints tie for third place. Prints 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 prints. There may be more than 10 prints placing if a tie situation takes up additional spots.

The winners will be posted on February 1.

Thanks for all the inputs! I??™d say it??™s been a good year for aviation art prints. Hard to choose.

Drum roll please…

1. Stick to me like Glue – Alex Hamilton
2. Bold, Reckless & Supreme – Robert Taylor
3. Cactus Air Force – Jack Fellows

Honorable mention would go to Valiant Response.

#2 would have easily been my #1 if it had only been in color… And I had never seen Alex’s print until the nomination thread, I was obviously very much impressed!

And the machine grows idiotic
Who’s gonna be its ingenious critic?

Everybody loves the perfect solution
To beat the odds against the poorest possible substitution
What you see is never what you’re gonna get
Everybody’s playin’ Revolution Roulette.

1. (3 points) – Starting Line by Russell Smith

Spads, spinning propellers and dust. The mood before a mission has been captured perfectly.

2. (2 points) – Combat Over Croydon by Mark Postlethwaite

Aircraft throwing themselves around the sky during the Battle of Britain. What is there not to like? The Bf 110 as the main subject is the cherry on top. I really enjoyed the WIP on this piece, as Mark illustrated how he overcame several difficulties in the development of the painting.

3. (1 point) – Target London by Nicolas Trudgian

An He 111 and the murky background of London feeling the effects of an air raid are depicted with telling effect. I’m cheering on the RAF, yet running for the nearest Underground stop!

And I just have to give an “honorable mention” to –

Bombing Banshees – VMSB-244 by Jack Fellows

The colors and reflectivity on the Helldiver, the wave action below, the junglescape and the humidity present in the clouds impart a Pacific scene as only Jack can do.

I will go with:

1st Target London- Nicolas Trudgian
2nd Combat over Croydon- Mark Postlethwaite
3rd Dawn’s Early Light- Russ Smith

Honorable Mention: Stick to me like glue- Alex Hamilton

Honestly, I could very easily flip my 1st and 2nd because both are excellent in their own ways :thumbsup2
