Art and posts by Kristopher Battles, Marine Combat Artist
Thursday, August 02, 2012
Here are two monotype prints I did today-- portraits of Marines. I did both of them as a combination of two runs of the plate, the first being the color(s) and the second being the black tones and lines.
Though they're not perfect, I feel these monotypes stand fairly well on their own as expressive images.
I am a landscape and portrait painter of the Classical Realist school, inspired by the masters of art history as I paint the world around me.
I am currently serving as a Combat Artist in the US Marine Corps.
