If you’re interested in de Havilland Mosquito Pictures then my latest commission may be just what you’re looking for. I’ve just finished hand-drawing a de Havilland DH.98 Mosquito in pencil.
Drawing of a de Havilland DH.98 Mosquito
I was excited when I was asked to draw the de Havilland Mosquito as this is the first time I’ve drawn an aircraft from the Second World War. The woman who commissioned the portrait wanted it for her husband’s birthday as it’s his favourite plane from the era.
Finding a DH.98 Mosquito Photograph
Usually when I draw a portrait the client provides me with a photograph, but in this case, there was no photo so I had to find something myself. So before I could start drawing the DH.98 Mosquito, I first had to do a bit of research to find a suitable image. I did some searching via google and eventually settled on one that fitted the bill perfectly.
A Few ‘Mossie’ Facts
While looking for good images to work from I also learned a few facts about this impressive RAF Bomber and I thought I’d share one or two with you. The de Havilland Mosquito was affectionately known as the ‘Mossie’ by its crews and was a British multi-role combat aircraft during World War 2 and afterwards. This pencil drawing is of a DH.98 serial ML963 and it was part of 571 Squadron but sadly was lost during an operation against Berlin in April 1945. (Thank you Internet!)
Buy this De Havilland Mosquito Picture as an LE Print
Although the original pencil drawing was a commission, I am also selling prints of the original as limited edition prints. I will be selling just 100 prints and each print will be numbered and signed (if you like), by the portrait artist, me – Angela. The prints are 12″ x 8″ in size and the price for each print is just £15.
If you’re interested in buying a limited edition print of this de Havilland DH.98 Mosquito, or you just want to find out more, please send me an email and I’ll get straight back to you.
I look forward to hearing from you.
