Winter Wolves

During nearly 20 years of specialising in aviation art Nicolas Trudgian has gained a reputation as one of the best, with his originals and limited editions being highly sought after by collectors.  Having been a prolific sketcher as a child, leaving school for 3 years formal art training at college was a natural evolution.  The early part of his professional career involved a variety of commercial illustration work for many well known corporations, they was often high pressure projects but helped Nicolas develop discipline and speed.

Nicolas has always been fascinated by trains and the railways and these were the subjects of his first prints.  It was after signing up with his first publisher, The Military Gallery, that he turned to aviation with such excellent results.

Our Favourite
Nicloas Trudgian’s background as a professional illustrator clearly influences his aviation work, skillful use of light, colour, contrast and images packed with detail are hallmarks that are all brought to bare in the superb painting, Dawn Chorus
