Aviation Art: Air Ambulance B200 Essendon.

The RFDS had the contract to operate four B200 Kingair a/c based Essendon from 1998 to 2010. The a/c were fitted out to take 2 stretcher cases & 2 walking patients. The painting is 300mm x 600mm acrylic on stretched canvas.

Thank you everyone for your kind words.I am amazed & encouraged.

Here is the photo Wally provided me with as a reference for the painting. The challenge for an artist is to create a piece that is both interesting &/or tells a story. I deleted a lot of the asphalt & put in a more dramatic sky,with a B200 started up for a quick mercy mission.

Actually,I really love the colour scheme of that fleet.

Our resident 'Prunie' artists Alan used some of his expert artistic license to create a dramatic background for the painting.
A lightning bolt here, a cow that's been poked up the bum there, etc !

"Artistic licence" - that's what ya call it, huh?

Aye Ess

The eyes don't follow me around the room but the painting sings:

"I watch the lightning crack over canefields. I laugh and think, this is Australia"

You got a rego for your Dove and Lear? Photos shouldn't be too difficult.

Nice work Aye Ess.
