Not really sure where to put this so posting here initially, Mods can move as they see fit.

I have an original Eric Day watercolour of a C47 in D day stripes. I think this could also be an exclusive picture in as much as searching Eric Day as an aviation artist I cannot find a C47 picture, also it was painted as a presentation piece as there is a newspaper cutting attached to the back and on the front there is a mark where a plaque has been at some time, a commission it seems for someone and as such not been subject to printing.

I came across it the other day while having a clear out, got it many years back but never had it on the wall and probably never will so decided to sell but wondered if anyone here would be interested, or in fact shed any more light on the artist. I haven't found a great deal of information, a lot of his paintings and prints are apparently on a lot of RAF officers mess walls and although known primarily as an aviation artist he did paint other subjects and some of his work can have a value ?

Be interested in the feedback on this one, thanks
