Hello Soren ... I've wondered where you had got to. Glad to see you back and posting again. This one is a bit different for you but you've captured him excellently.

I've done some study on the war to end all wars ... mostly in the air war. My greatest interest is the American Civil War, but there are quite a few similarities ... trenches for instance and both had aircraft (balloons). I understand the fascination ...

Re: Wilfred Owen portrait in coloured pencil (burnt umber )

Soren, we've been missing you. This is one of the best pieces that I have seen you bring to the forum although I have to say I have a penchant for those little WWI sketches that you seem to excel at. This is an excellent example of a colored pencil piece not needing to be layered over and over again and I really like the use of hatching. Very, Very nice!

You know Soren and Ken--we haven't done a theme thread in a while if one of you wants to start a war---thread which we could cover all kinds of war through the ages from Assyria and Babylon to the world wars, Spanish American, Civil or any that come to mind.

What do you think?

nice portrait! Not just the likeness, but you made him intelligent, wise, sad, gentle, looks like an attractive character...

Re: Wilfred Owen portrait in coloured pencil (burnt umber )

Soren, tour sketches and drawing of world war one have always touched me. I have several uncles who were in that war. One of them was gassed and forever damaged in mind and spirit by that experience. All of them have passed on to their reward, but I think of them many times when sleepness comes to me. I am 75 years old, and for almost all of lfe there have been those terrible wars. Myself and my sons have been involved in several, and I doubt that I will see the end of them before I too pass on.

Such a waste! however your images do those who served much honor

Chuck

ALAN SEEGER

1888~1916



"If it must be, let it come in the heat of action. Why flinch? It is by far the noblest form in which death can come. It is in a sense almost a privilege. . . ." Alan Seeger

Alan Seeger joined the French Foreign Legion as America was not yet in the war, he died K.I.A on the 4th July 1916.N ( THE SOMME )

I've pictured him here wih his uniform roughly sketche in.

Re: Wilfred Owen portrait in coloured pencil (burnt umber )

The average man certainly had different moral standards in those days, didn't they? Personal honor is almost unheard of in our day yet it was the driving force in years past.

Very nice, Soren.
