[Acrylic on Board - 12"x10"]

Close up study of an aircraft engine. The contrasting shades of polished metal and rust and the great variety of textures made this an irresistible if somewhat complicated subject.

For the technically minded it is a Mk 18 Bristol Centaurus radial engine of 1947. It was usd to power the Hawker Sea Fury.
