Historical Battles Painting Thread
« on: June 05, 2015, 09:18:30 pm »
I have found many painting threads of the Napoleonic Wars, but cease to find a one dedicated to battles. So I thought to myself: why not create one?

Please include names of the battles if you can. Also, I have a missing name for one of them. If you know what the battle names are then please tell me and I'll replace them.

Two large high res pictures of Lady Butler's famour painting depicting the 28th Foot at the battle of Quatre Bras. On a side note as some might point out the 28th actuelly retained their stopepipe shakos throughout the 100 days campaign instead of adopting the Belgic Shako like the rest of the army as depicted.

Its recommended you open these pictures in a new tab.

Of course, I also think lines should be able to move in double rank without having emotional breakdowns.

The one you called battle of dennewitz shows probably the "battle" of Hagelberg

Not really a battle, but I like this image. It shows Napoleon's return from his exile in Elba.

My God, how terrible is the war, and how beautiful are the pictures painted about the war! Suppose you are interested in pictures about battles in the same years as in the Napoleonic Wars. In that case, I advise you to take a closer look at the pictures of the Battle of Waterloo. I don't know the exact authors, I just came across some kind of picture of this battle one day, and now I've started drawing it on canvas. Moreover, recently my girlfriend gave me a drawing kit from this site -- https://paintingbynumbersshop.com. However, I later bought additional paint because my painting needs a lot of paint and oil.
