The Great War, or World War One as it later became known, affected many lives. Paintings of this momentous event are widespread, my art attempts to capture the feelings of some of the soldiers there. Always respectfully. This painting is about the Menin Road, a rather insignificant road that happened to be approximately eight feet above the surrounding countryside. The advantage of height over the enemy was enough to sacrifice many thousands of lives on both sides.

is the goal for every painting by Alan Brain. It is made visible through the artist's use of colour (sometimes bold, other times muted but always vibrant); and unusual geometric shapes triggered by realism from the artist's imagination. The emotion in the artwork is there for the viewer to engage with and interpret in their own way. Most of the paintings are in watercolour, some are in acrylic, others use both. The artist will use anything however to create that certain feeling in his artwork.
