This was originally painted for the RAF Heraldry Trust as part of their collection of RAF Heraldry. This is a digital version of that painting.
I am happy to take on personal commissions for the design and/or traditional and/or digital paintings of new or existing Armorial Bearings.However, please note that I will not produce artwork based on 'Bucketshop heraldry', that is heraldry based entirely on your surname bought online from certain 'Family Heraldry' companies . Even though this is a perfectly legitimate business, it deals in Arms granted to families whose male lines have since died out; morally speaking it is a form of theft!
