Painting - Watercolor On Watercolor Paper
This is a watercolor on watercolor painting of my experiences as a Marine serving as an embedded Combat Illustrator / Photographer in Iraq. I was in Fallujah and there was an Angel Flight… A Marine had been killed by an IED blast. I didn’t have my camera with me because it had exited stage left with all my other gear. It was the first and last time that I didn’t keep my camera on my person that entire deployment (even when I was using the head!) My fellow Marine, then SSgt. Jonathan Knauth, was generous enough to share his photography and allow me permission to work from it so that I could create this piece. This painting was completed in Iraq while on deployment and is currently in a private collection.
