I thought today, we would look at a local artist. I happen to know this artist personally through Ely Cathedral with which he is also associated. G
#GrahamAustin has been a wildlife and aviation painter for over 50 years. He is known for his meticulous technique. I, very luckily, have an example of each of his artistic fields.
I have an early aviation piece which was done in 1989. The Supermarine Spitfire was an iconic WWII plane. One can see the meticulous artistry. Colours follow smoothly, lines are precise,
From aviation to wildlife. My second piece is of a Kingfisher sitting on a branch looking intently at some morsel which might be its’ dinner. Once again we see the painstaking precision. Every pine needle, feather and piece of bark so superbly done. Two fine examples by a very talented artist.
Hi, I am trying to track down a picture that Graham was commissioned to paint in 1994, it is called Bandit in the circuit and the subject is a Lancaster Bomber under attack by a nightfighter over Witchford near Ely.
Any info would be greatly received.
Thank you, Mark
I believe I know the piece which you are looking for but I am afraid I do not know of its’ whereabouts. Sorry, I could not be of asistance to you in your endeavour.
