James Baldwin is an artist specializing in watercolor and pencil. His pencil drawings of aircraft are wonderful examples of how much realism and “wow factor” can be achieved with this medium.

Jamie’s recent work is this image of Johnnie Johnson’s famous Spitfire Mk. IX, EN398 JE-J. Johnson flew this Spitfire whilst leading the Canadian Wing based at Kenley. He shot down 16 of his total of 38 enemy aircraft destroyed while flying EN398, leading many to believe this to be the highest scoring Spitfire of World War II.

Other examples of Jamie’s work can be found at www.watercolour-paintings.me.uk/aviation_art.html

Jonhson has impressed me on his mystic ability to make pencil shading look more realistic like photo.
Well done Johnie
