I have been researching Australian War Artists and must admit to getting bogged down following my grandfather's WW1 experience. It seems he spent a lot of time in Sutton Veny in England and was lucky to escape the influenza epidemic of 1919.
I have decided to undertake a mixed media triolgy in which I hope to capture some of the emotion of the times and the impact on Australia and my family. I will be illustrating those experiences of WW1, WW2 and Vietnam.
I am posting a working sketch of the first part of the trilolgy.
