Playing with paint

Just to sharpen the brushes a little I knocked up these two small paintings over the last week. A F-14A Tomcat of VF-211 for a friend
and for a change of pace a Boeing F4B-4 from the pre-war era.
Each painting took about 5 hours and the aircraft each measure about 6 inches. Both were painted Alla Prima ( at first attempt) and Brunaille (executed entirely in shades of brown) - in this case using burnt umber and white over a burnt sienna wash.
