Operation Pegasus Bridge

By VonBrrr

A bit of a failed Corel painting I created a month back, in general the composition and brush strokes are of low quality.

Illustrates the British airborne glider troop attack on Pegasus Bridge on the eve of the Normandy D-Day Invasion

Created in Corel Painter

Hey, I've been to that bridge too and you respect the scenery not bad at all! The bridge have been replaced now and it is maintained not far from its former position.
It is a very piece of art you share there, congrats

I can see why you'd think it's 'failed', but there are still a lot of good points about this painting. Overall you're getting really good at lighting, especially moonlight, since everything looks exactly as one would expect on a brightly moonlit night. The sky is well painted; it has a very traditional look to it that works well.

I think the main problems are the weak composition and underdrawing; your brushwork and tonal work are fine. The white building on the right is a particular weak-point I think, it's aligned too closely with the edge of the image, and would look better further in, or further out, so part of it it out of the picture. Having that narrow 'gutter' of darkness to the side is a small thing, but it weakens the impact of the image quite a lot. :p
