About "Dummy Run - Douglas Boston"

Douglas Boston A-20 Medium bomberNo. 772 over Catania, Sicily with Mt. Vesuvius in the background. The painting depicts a WW2 diversionery operation as recorded by Captain James Henry Scott DFC. (Jimmy Scott) 12 Squadron, 3 Wing, S.A.A.F. The operation outlined by Jimmy was also briefly described in HJ Martin and Neil Orpen's "Eagles Victorious" page 27. "The confusion of the enemy was compounded by the dropping of dummy parachutists, 20 of which were carried in each of 8 Bostons from 12 and 24 Squadrons in addition to their normal bomb load, in a raid on the Niscemi area."
Three days later they tried it again when the British Parachute Brigade required a diversion near Catania.

About Don

Don Bell

I am a multi-faceted artist and illustrator, Senior Professional Architectural Technologist, former advertising exec and keen photographer. I work in oil, watercolours, charcoal, pencil, pen and mixed-media including digital art. I enjoy all types of subject matter ranging from wildlife, landscapes, seascapes, portraits - across the spectrum to architecture, contemporary art, aviation, ships, trains and still life.
My aviation works are well researched and the aircraft and locations are accurate as possible so that they provide a true historical record for others to appreciate.

I attended art classes from a young age and was privately tutored by Andre' Vancoillie, well known local artist and lecturer at the age of 16 years as well as Paul Lavender in water colours.
My appreciation to Mrs Chilcott, my high school art teacher who saw something in me and went out of her way to mentor me by giving me extra art lessons in her spare time.
I matriculated in art at the PE Technical College.

All my works are available as prints.

Price Range

US$ 58-17,778



I have participated in exhibitions at the Getaway Show Cape Town, Port Elizabeth St Georges Gallery, De Oude Kraal Luxury Guest Lodge, Grahamstown Arts Festival, Queenstown and EPSAC Port Elizabeth.

My aviation works are on display in my SAAF Museum Art Gallery in Forest Hill Port Elizabeth.
