From left to right: My first attempt (acrylic)... definately need to get an airbrush. "Orbit" (acrylic) yeah, that's better! "Moonscape" (designers gouache) my first commission... and they kept the original!
"Into The Hourglass" (gouache) Competition entry... "time" was the theme. "UFO" (gouache). "Surfer" (acrylic) For a friend.
"Star Trek - Defiant" (acrylic)...
A compimentary print of this painting was given to Richard Arnold (Paramount Pictures Corporation / Star Trek Office) whom I met at a "Trek" convention at the NEC, Birmingham in 1988. Part of the painting features a small craft that I called "Defiant"... the word is actually painted on there. Many years later, "Star Trek - Deep Space Nine" featured a small ship called... "Defiant".

"Orbital Patrol" (gouache) I liked that one! "Challenger's Glory" (acrylic) That brown shape - bottom right is actually an island off the "Horn of Africa" called Socotra (Republic of Yemen)... a lot of people seem to think it's the shadow cast by Challenger itself.... which was typically at an altitude of 300 kilometres above the ground... think about it!
"Cruise Liner" (acrylic)... atleast you wouldn't get sea sick. "Another Time, Another Place" (acrylic)... some weird place I went to in my head.
