    beautiful painting Born

    A rather dramatic ejection in weather like that.... would like to be in that pilots' boots...



    a Eurofighter in german livery and a Sinn 103....... that looks like a masterpiece for Karl-Heinz or Crusader ( though I might be guessing wrong....)

    Re: Another update:

    This painting and the Lunar landing with Neal Armstrong belong to me.
    Born does fantastic work. Not only his artistic skills but his sensitivity to the subject. This one in particular includes symbols that only someone with knowledge of the war could understand.
    Thanks Born. I'm saving up for more to come.

    I try to capture a somewhat surreal scene of the soldiers coming back from the war and find that nobody forgets them. The soldiers, painted as humans rather than a group of statues in the Vetnam Memorial represent the past. The memorial wall and the man who stands in front it represent the present. The watch and the pavement perspective link the past to the present. The sombre lighting is intended to be ambiguous and is a cross between cool nighttime in Washington and hot sunset in Vietnam.

    I hope you like it.

    Regards,
    Born

    I just saw your post, Jeroen. Close, but no cigar. :cry:

    I like really big transport planes rather than fighters, and somehow I don't think I would go for German markings, nor for the Sinn 103 (the 656 is really the watch I like best from their collection).

    As it is, I have indeed recently commissioned a picture, but I'll keep the forum in suspense... ah, what the heck, there's no visible watch in it anyway, but hopefully a USAF C-17.

    Looking forward to see your comissioned picture.... those big birds surely have something special... I have been lucky enough to hitch a ride on a C130K a few years ago....... the view from the cockpit (with those enormous windows) is amazing...

    I have just about all the info I need to comission one ....
    and yes one of my all time favourite planes will be in there.....

    Hi

    It's time for an update again!
    This time it's the old Speedy with Apollo 17.

    The time shown by the watch is the exact hour and minute Gene Cernan left the surface of the moon, in GMT.

    Unless the owner of the painting wants to change its name, it will be called "Last Step on the Moon".

    The painting is 7"x 10" in size and is commissioned by one of our own forum members in England.

    I hope you like it.

    beautiful Born!

    I specially like the way the colours in the sky and the dial match...

    and the reflection of Jack Schmitt in his visor.... :wink:

    Many of your paintings are very emotive Born and I find this one especially so. I don't know why but just staring at it brought a lump to my throat. Another wonderful work.

    I believe people subconciously react to the same painting in different ways.

    However, I find that if the painter put his heart into his work, most of the audience will be able to preceive it, regardless of "how good" the painting is or its style. And I also believe that a child can express his feelings into a painting just as well as a professional artist.

    The clearest example is perhaps the Vietnam War painting. I really felt what I wrote in the description when painting it and tried to pull it off. I am no Van Goh or Turner, but I believe at least 70% of the audience felt "something" when seeing that painting the first time.

    So far I have been lucky to have been asked to paint only the subjects that I like. In some cases people told me the background stories of the paintings and they touched me. This I believe helped me paint better also.

    You've got a good point there, Eddie. I am an unreformed cultural troglodyte, but even I am moved by Born's particular style that is at the same time emotive and straightforward.

    Portraits instead!

    I painted this two of my favourite artists over the weekend. They are both about 4x6 inch in size. I tried a new technique and new type of paper, which allow the scans to be blown up several times and still maintain the sharpness of the original.

    They are not commissioned works, just for the wall of my living room. :) I hope you like them.

    There wil be more watch-related paintings to share in the near future.

    Cheers,
    Born

    Water colour gallery update: Happy Birthday..

    It's time for an update.

    This time we have a big James Bond and Pierce Brosnan fan!
    Ask Tim (Captain Blovitch) how much he loves the Series. :D

    Happy Birthday William!

    Thanks for the Latin quotes everyone, though it took me ages to translate.

    I have done so far about 20-30 pictures -- can't remember exactly; have to check the log

    There will be a new painting soon. This one is watch related.

    This time I have two new paintings of Doxa watches.

    The first one is the original Sub-300T with Clive Cussler.
    The second one is the origianal 200T graph with a diver.
    Both paintings are commissioned by Pete "Flying Doctor" Millar, our own forum member. :)

    A couple of prints have been made for each painting, which have been sent to Doxa and Clive and some friends of Pete's. I think he has a plan to reproduce some more for those interested, but you have to ask him directly. I think he's usually at WUS's doxa forum when he's not here.

    Anyway I hope you like them.

    Regards,
    Born

    This is Captain Blovitch's lovely daugther with "Florence" the Ferrari.
    in Moranello.

    And yes, it's watch-related-- look, she wears a pink Swatch! :D

    There will be another one coming soon.

    Thanks

    Born,


    SJ has almost as many watches as me, she wears also wears a Red Speedmaster, but the Pink "Diamonds Are Forever" bond Swatch is a favourite.

    You have captured the my duaghters likeness, the atmosphere in Maranello and the stunning lines of "Florence" perfectly.

    You are a genius....

    Right, this time it is definitely watch-related.

    Flying Doctor's Doxa Seahunter.
    The shark may be a bit over-sized but I think it looks good that way-- Jaws's brother perhaps? :D
    Hope you like it.

    Discovery of Atlantis

    Well, at least in this new painting of mine for Flying Doctor.
    Doxa Diving Star with an old-style diver in watercolour.
    The colour scheme is intended to look nostalgic.
    Hope you like it.

    Anyone for Motorhead or AP?

    New painting, that is!

    This one is for Paul. I have to admit this is the first time for me to have a rocker as a subject. I had so much fun trying to capture Lemmy's energy (and wildness? :lol: ) Hope it comes out all right?

    The date shown is when Paul went to see a Motorhead concert :)

    BTW Paul's AP's dial is actually black -- just in case someone try to find that red, blazing dial :wink:
