This is the second of the three ‘Somme’ paintings I worked on to mark the centenary of the Battle of the Somme. October was the month before the battle ended. As with ‘’1916 – September’, I’ve added texture with pieces of ground-down stone and lumps of earth and crushed charcoal. I’ve used a knife to create dynamic by gouging and cutting at the surface. There was no careful precision in the creation of these paintings. Violence is never precise.
