Helmand 2013 

"In 2013, I was deployed to Afghanistan with the unit 4 Rifles as their war artist. This painting captures the preparation for a ‘cut off group’ on an ambush. Their mission was successful. The little girl in the farm house took a lot of interest in what we were up to and despite her pensive expression she managed to charm sweets from the riflemen. For those who know Helmand this was near FOB (fort) FOLAD".
