The Letter

This is the completed painting of “The Letter“, it’s oil on canvas, 40 x 30 inches. This is one of the paintings in my new series – “Aspects of Edinburgh“.

A time shift into the past for this piece. A war time 1940’s feel. The background is a view to the Forth Rail Bridge from South Queensferry. The first German air attack of the 2nd World War took place over the FRB when German bombers came to destroy ships at the Rosyth Naval Dockyard. Spitfires from Turnhouse were scrambled and drove off the bombers, shooting down two of them. You can find a potted history of the bridge here;
