"I do like my paintings to tell a story, and this painting has a lot of narrative content - from the tense game of draughts (yes, we did play a game to ensure the pieces are all in correct places!), to the airmen behind whose game of cricket has been disrupted (can you spot where their ball has gone?), and the Hurricane prepared and waiting for action, parachute on the tail ready to be put on, and groundcrew poised to help the pilot aboard. I really enjoyed setting up and painting the still-life in the foreground - almost a painting in its own right." - Graham Turner

Award Winning Aviation Art

Graham Turner's original oil painting Into the Hands of Fate (right) achieved award success at the 2013 Guild of Aviation Artists annual exhibition, held in the prestigious Mall Galleries, London, where it was awarded the Cross and Cockade prize for the best First World War aviation painting, the Roy Nockolds Trophy (voted for by the public), and was runner up for the two top awards - the Aviation Painting of the Year and Flypast Fellows Award for Excellence. It also sold straight away (for £7,500).

He also won the Roy Nockolds Trophy in 2011, the first time he exhibited with the Guild, for his painting 'Steady Boy', and was Highly Commended for 'Thank You Harry Tate' in 2012, both 'Victor & Vanquished' and 'Contact' in 2015, 'Replacements' in 2016, and 'Letter from Home' in 2017. Letter from Home also won the Wilkinsons Sword Poignard for the Best Oil Painting.

2018 saw Graham win the Cross and Cockade award once again, for his oil painting 'Dawn of the Machines'
