Help For Heroes Artwork Auction

Mon 11 Feb 2013 by Paul _Collicutt

Robot City's Curtis the Coast Guard

I have painted a picture especially for an auction to raise money for Help For Heroes. It is in conjunction with an event being organised by Cineworld in Brighton.

The auction is open now and you can bid on this picture at this site until it closes on Feb 16th 2013.

“Help For Heroes” is a charity that I support. Both my brothers used to be in the Army serving in the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers and they both wore the red and white Hackle on their caps. It was obvious therefore that I had to paint an image of Curtis The Colossal Coast Guard from my Robot City books who sports a red and white livery.

I’ve blogged about the process of painting this image on the Robot City Blog on the Robot City website http://www.robotcity.co.uk/ and also on my other blog http://paulcollicutt.blogspot.co.uk/. ­­The painting itself is  30in x 22in ( 762mm x 559mm ) and is in Acrylics on Illustration Board. It is finished off with a "Japan Gold Size " varnish.

ALL the money goes to Help For Heroes.
