Space Shuttle Astronaut Painted by Steve Knight

Featured in Astro Art

Probably one of my favourite paintings I have painted. A good friend gave me the original NASA picture and said "paint this" I took a look and thought there was no way i could do it, but was up for the challenge.

I was really pleased the way it turned out, kind of surprised myself. 

Every now and then we will be adding new images to our Home Page. We hope that you like the new look to our website
