One of my favorite artists is Darryl Legg, who hails from Colesberg, the Republic of South Africa.   He is popular with a number of  eHangar members, and you'll see his paintings pop up on several  different threads here.   In fact, eight of his paintings were entered into Fuzzy's "Top 10 Aviation Aviation Art Originals of 2013" thread in the Collecting Aviation Art section of eHangar.   I've been collecting Darryl's paintings  since 2007, and I thought it would be nice to set up a thread dedicated to his artwork so it could be viewed at one location, as opposed to being scattered around the website.   So folks, if you own or admire the work of Darryl Legg, I encourage you to add images  of your favorite paintings by him to this thread.   Thanks much!              Let me start the thread with the first aviation paintings I purchased from Darryl:      Hawker Typhoon      http://i238.photobucket.com/albums/ff319/guss45/eHangar2/eHangar_group_2022-1.jpg      Junkers Ju 87 Stuka      http://i238.photobucket.com/albums/ff319/guss45/eHangar2/eHangar_group_2024-1.jpg      Royal Aircraft Factory S.E.5a      http://i238.photobucket.com/albums/ff319/guss45/legg-SE5.jpg      Bristol F2B Fighter      http://i238.photobucket.com/albums/ff319/guss45/legg-biplane.jpg
I can see why discerning collectors go for Darryl's work . The quality stands out , clearly someone who knows and loves his subjects and their environment . The Typhoon looks almost 3D . I feel like reaching in and tapping the metal skin of that near wing .
Thanks much NeilF, and I completely agree.   The Typhoon painting in particular has a certain realism to it that makes it jump out at you.   Here's another painting by Mr. Legg called "Mavis Down", which depicts a Grumman F6F-3 Hellcat and a Kawanishi H6K Mavis:      http://i238.photobucket.com/albums/ff319/guss45/eHangar5/MavisDown1.jpg      http://i238.photobucket.com/albums/ff319/guss45/eHangar5/MavisDown2.jpg      http://i238.photobucket.com/albums/ff319/guss45/eHangar5/MavisDown3.jpg
Good idea Guss      Down side is we are letting more people in our our secret artist!              Tempest - V1 Encounter                    Beaufighters Over Malta                    Pulverizer II
Wow Guss - awesome paintings!      Early Navy jets are fantastic.   The Skyray is a favorite of mine.   The Cutlass is never going to win any beauty contests, but it sure is interesting.   Panther & Skyhawk are great too.   Darryl sure does superb work!      Hopefully you'll be doing some more.   Cougar & Tiger pop in to mind off the top of my head.
A few more by Darryl Legg (Kurt - The Cougar and Tiger were nice adds to this series):      Grumman F9F Cougar      http://i238.photobucket.com/albums/ff319/guss45/eHangar11%20-%20Dec2014/Cougar_zps6b2bfe28.jpg      Grumman F-11 Tiger      http://i238.photobucket.com/albums/ff319/guss45/eHangar11%20-%20Dec2014/Tiger_zpsb3d812b7.jpg      Douglas F3D Skyknight      http://i238.photobucket.com/albums/ff319/guss45/eHangar11%20-%20Dec2014/Skyknight_zpse78d3b8a.jpg      McDonnell F-2 Banshee      http://i238.photobucket.com/albums/ff319/guss45/eHangar11%20-%20Dec2014/Banshee_zpspbebl03x.jpg
Gus,      Great series of jets!   I've always liked the lines of the Cougar & the Tiger.   There's a new 1/48 kit of the Cougar by Kitty Hawk.   That fills a big void in the model world.   Still waiting for a new Tiger kit.
Wow, he is seriously talented.  Hard to believe I havnt seen his work before. I would love to own his Douglas Dauntless, my favorite aircraft. His work reminds me of RG Smith, except with light, and color!
