Hi guy’s any of you collect artist pencil drawings, originals not prints, I think pencil is a great medium in art.
Here is one of mine it’s called Bader versus Galland and has 23 Battle of Britain signatures. Look forward to seeing what you have.

This is gonna be a real cool thread.

You guys have some real great stuff hidden away in your archives.

Hal, who is the artist on your pencil drawing?

Yeah the detail on that NT P-51 is sweet no doubt about that.

I love pencil art. In many cases, I like the pencil work better than the paintings. I think RTs pencil work is outstanding. I am sure that many of you are familiar with the lovely and talented Chicoartist. Well…Mr. Wade Myers has some incredible pencil work! I haven’t obtained any of his original work yet (I though long and hard about it a few times) but I hope to get some eventually.
When I visited the Military Gallery a couple of years ago, I got to meet Robert Taylor and see a few of his original pencil sketches. He did one that featured Gabby Gabreski standing on the wing of his P-47. It was perfect! Once the drooling and shaking stopped, I was o.k. The cost was high (but not anywhere near as high as his paintings), but if I had the money, I would have taken it.
I don’t know if many of you remember some of the pencil sketches depicted in RTs books. There is one of note that has a few RAF pilots lounging around in the grass next to a spitfire, waiting for a scramble. that is my all time favorite. I told Robert as much….we looked at the picture and talked about it for awhile. I told him that I thought he should do more pencil work and publish it. (not that anyone is going to listen to me), but hey….thats how I feel …and he should know it. MG started to issue more pencil work this past year. I am still waiting for them to issue my spitfire work though.
Regards,
Steve

WOW! That has got to be the sketch that all other sketches are judged by.

Having been to Duxford before, this looks like a view from the east end of the field looking northwest.

That P-51 looks SO inviting!

One of Jim Dietz’s large studies (pencil on vellum) at the NMNA at Pensacola. I believe this one is the final study for Best on Deck:

I wish I knew how Trudgian sketches like that 😕 . When you see one of his sketches up close you realise that every single pencil stroke is *perfect*, almost like a machine has done it (that’s a compliment!). They are really amazing.

Here’s some more for you … keep in mind that these are flash pictures taken at a slight angle:

Detail view of Jim’s pencil study:

The master himself, R. G. Smith. It’s confusing here at first, because I wanted maximum detail, but the gray outer area isn’t the wall, but yet another mat … there’s a nice dark frame outside of the image area you see here:

And a detail view:

Don’t I wish! My images of the Dietz and RG Smith works were taken at the Nat’l Museum of Naval Aviation at Pensacola a couple of years ago.

RG has quite a few mind-blowing large original oils there. If you’ve never seen one of RG’s originals in person, you haven’t seen ‘the best’ yet. According to his book, he was color blind – to what extent I forget – so his paintings compensated by being masterful depictions of action … and he’s still got some pretty colors in there … for example (pls excuse the color image here in this pencil thread, but hey, “RG” is always on topic! 8) ):

I believe it was in the Red/Green areas of the spectrum

Just arrived today my latest Russel Smith Giclee “The Golden Triumvirate”

Its double-remarques and is just lovely, I will look for a local framer who can rush this one I want to display it in my classroom.

I really think Russell is brilliant, I have every intention of gobbling up as much of his work as I can possibly afford, lol

keep em coming guys
