A Salute to the Armed Forces
In military art, conflict is suggested, but it doesn’t have to be shown. Military art has a lot in common with two other genres I love -- Western and marine art -- in that it's so visually stimulating, it tells a great story.
Patrons of this type of art are almost always people thoroughly versed on the subject matter. In fact, they very often know quite a bit more than the artist, so the artist had better be accurate! So this art form demands a great deal of research.
The same principles are applied to this art form as any other -- make a powerful, dynamic image with a strong narrative thread.
