About "SAAF Hawker Hartbeest"

SAAF Hawker Hartbeest No. 813 of 41 Squadron during the East African campaign of WW2 1941.
Flown by 2Lt. W. A. Royce and Sgt. Pickup until the final Italian surrender at Gondor.

The Hawker Hartebeest was a South African built light bomber based on the Audax army-cooperation aeroplane, itself a variant of the well known Hart bomber.
65 were built, some of which saw action in WW2 against Italian forces during the East African campaign.
Although one British built Audax survives and is on long-term restoration to fly in the UK, the sole surviving Hartebeest is on permanent display at the South African National Museum of Military History, Saxonwold, Johannesburg. South Africa. (Alan Wilson on Flickr)

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$ 55-14,885



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 the South African Air Force Museum Art Gallery in Forest Hill Port Elizabeth.


Art Matric + private tuition: Andre' Vancoillie & Paul Lavender
