Slightly off topic, but a while back I asked for a couple of copies of pictures of Lilya Litvyak 'cause I wanted to do a painting of her (thanks for all the stuff, particularly to Boosher). Anyway I changed my mind on the portrait, cause the photo's didn't seem to need to be paintings. So I did this instead as a form of tribute.

Fantastic. I'm guessing she would be touched.

Nice work!

You are one hell of an artist. Your paintings are so beautiful and detailed. It's a real pleasure to view your work.

Beautiful painting...and I don't consider this OT at all.

In fact, the Russian woman pilots and their contribution is practically ignored in the community although being a very fascinating part of history.

Hey. Thanks for looking. I was pretty pleased with how this one turned out 'cause the colour was really difficult to get right in the rose, but I wanted to get that cold winter light into the painting and try to allow the rose to create it's own warmth and have an air of fragility about it while retaining a feeling of monumental strength (sh1t, I'm getting all arty farty). I'm going to write a few details about Lilya on the back of the painting when it's dry and put a link to a biography on it's page on my website. I'd like more people to know of Lilya's story and if the painting turns just one person that wouldn't normally be interested onto her story then I'll be happy.
