War Artists in Afghanistan - BEYOND THE WIRE :
The book features the work of four war artists in Afghanistan: Douglas Farthing, a former sergeant in the British paratroopers; and Michael Fay, soldier-turned-combat artist for the United States Marine Corps; Arabella Dorman, internationally recognised portrait painter and war artist; and Matthew Cook, trained illustrator, former Times war artist and Reservist Army solider. Each artist's work is accompanied by their own, first-hand account of war in Afghanistan.
Major Military Masterpieces:
National Army Museum
The Museum’s aim is to make all the oil paintings in the UK's public collections available for people throughout the world to learn from and explore.
To celebrate this great digital achievement, the curators have selected one of my works 'Pump House Contact' as part of their top ten favourite paintings.
National Army Museum:
one of my best ever paintings can now be purchased as a fine art print at the National Army Museum in London, you can buy it on line from the NAM's web site. I'm so chuffed 'The Fourth Man' depicts 3 soldiers patrolling the narrow medieval streets of Kabul looking from my perspective (fourth man).
2 PARA was the first British Battalion to enter Kabul and help create a safer environment in order to allow normality to grow.
