Road to Caen by LotharZhou Road to Caen by LotharZhou
One of the picture I started to paint 2 years ago, finally managed to finish it in photoshop today, based on my rough pencil sketch scan.

British army marching through the ruins of Caen in France, 1944

I absolutely love the misery and destruction contained in this picture.
Not to mention how amazingly done it is in general.
Just awesome!
It's a damn shame you didn't put it up in a higher resolution though, if such exists of this painting.

Thanks for your kind compliments, I don't normally paint in large size. It's just easier and quicker for me to finish it.

Com'on Rado, you know it's not true. But recently I am more into impressionism style compare to my previous paintings.

As JanBoruta said; great atmosphere and colour.

It's good to see the good old British Tommy getting some artistic recognition. :D :+fav:
