I have decided to paint it in acrylics and on 40 x 30 cm canvas. This painting are the first one in the new edition of my paintings which name is Elements and it was focused to give maximum close up on the same airplane, with covered rest of the airframe. There is given less attention on the same background, it is made in more abstract form while the focus is given to the aircraft painting to the highest possible level.

More info and complete painting steps are present in Warplanes 01
