“Hit The Beach”, by Marc Stolfi

“Hit the Beach”, watercolor and gouache on cotton rag 10″ x 10.5″ (click on image to enlarge)

This is my version of the view from behind a “hedgehog” obstacle on Omaha beech during D-day 1944. The soldier crouches behind the steel structure while fountains of water from exploding shells and bullets fall around him. I used a blurring technique to convey the noise and confusion of the battle. This is scene number 1 of a triptych.
