War Zone


A very different piece Tessa, I like the loose effect and the visible pen.

Strong, dramatic narrative that grabs the viewer’s attention Tessa.

A very dramatic scene, Tessa.

I agree with Carole, does get your attention. So awful, the things that go on in our world!

Real and gritty Tessa, excellent.

It's a great piece Tessa. Well done.

Many thanks all for looking and commenting. I do think art can be used if that’s the right word, to make us think more about the subject, but that’s probably a minefield!

Thought provoking indeed.

So well done Tessa - a striking image.

Many thanks Jacqueline and Margaret.
