Expressive ‘Plane Window’ Paintings from Jim Darling

By -

Those of us who are lucky enough to have experienced travel will be familiar with the view from the planes’ windows. Often dark, dull or inconsequential, but often spectacular and breathtaking – it’s a view we don’t get to see from anywhere else in the world, and one that sticks in the memory.

Artist Jim Darling has taken inspiration from these unique viewpoints, producing a series of paintings that show different elements of the world’s landscapes as they would be viewed from a plane’s cabin window.

There’s something really hypnotic and engaging about these pictures, and I think the artist has done a fantastic job of recreating these views that are exceptionally specific to the only situation in which you’d see them.
