Aerial Firefighters Large Airtanker Bases
Painting - Hand Painted Digital Art
This painting is a tribute to the brave people who fight fires from the sky. Aerial firefighters fly in extremely challenging conditions to save houses, land and people's lives. This scene, inspired by the style of vintage travel posters, shows a P2V Neptune airtanker dropping a load of retardant on a raging forest fire. P2V Neptunes were originally used in the Korean war to hunt for enemy submarines. Now their bomb bays are converted into tanks which carry lifesaving fire retardant. At the bottom of the image are the names of the large airtanker bases where these aircraft land to refuel and reload.
"Hand painted digital art" is a term used by Marilynn Flynn to describe her unique style of digital painting. Her digital works are original paintings created on a computer - but not by a computer. Unlike some digital painters who use automated rendering programs, she applies each brush stroke by hand using a digital pen, tablet and natural media painting software.
