Horrific scenes, such as war, should be depicted with powerful emotions...this you have accomplished with great sensitivity. Composition, gestures, color and tones ~ALL~ enhance this work.How would it be if I make a series of pictures on this subject? ABSOLUTELY...go for it!

the dark shapes and orange are lovely and well placed against the creamy grey

Agree with Chuck and definitely do some more!
This is powerful...creates some anxiety and alertness while viewing but can't stop looking. The movement of figures is wonderful.

Powerful! Captavating.

I am a soldier in the US Army.

I can hear the mortors being walked in as the troops are charging forward. Definetly do more. I keep telling myself I am going to do military paintings also.
