Operation Bagration 2Posted: August 18, 2016
I forgot how much I like drawing like this. This is ‘Operation Bagration 2’ (goes with the first drawing from the other day). Ink, ink wash and china white on a tightly toned paper. Basically, I flip through books of source material, find bits and pieces that interest me and jam them together into a larger composition, ignoring scale and simplifying where it seems appropriate.
I don’t have a specific goal for these drawings — just trying to enjoy myself while drawing things I find interesting. I’ve visited this subject before — many years ago, I was making photo lithographs of ‘portaits’ from soldiers in documentary/propaganda photos from the 30s and 40s.
