El Alamein Painting begins

I have been to many NZ war graves around the world with my job. but never get used to it. 
This week Im working on concept watercolours for the El Alamein composition. I have a few sketches from the trip and loads of photos...here are a few pics from last months amazing journey to Egypt with 22 El Alamein veterans. I hope to have the oil/metal composition up and running before Christmas...Ill post the concept drawings as they progress
