Limited Edition Hand-painted Covers
Below are a selection of the very Limited Edition First Day Covers that I have painted for ‘The Westminster Collection‘. The Cover’s are an Edition of only five and each is hand-painted using oils on a Gesso base or some are painted with watercolours.
Soldiers of the 2nd Battalion of the King’s Shropshire Light Infantry fighting on Périers Ridge. As part of Operation Overlord, they had landed on Sword beach. They advanced inland without support of the promised Sherman tanks, which were still logjammed back on the beach.
Both D-Day Covers are painted with oils.
