In 16th century war time armour maketh the man… it glorified his position in battle – but if you strip away the armour, then the man, you may only find a distant landscape bearing his soul.

    A tryptich! It’s great. The high key tones are a great counterfoil to the subject, and the whole thing hangs together so well. I also like the little figure in the background of the centre panel. Well done. :)

    Oh, this really does a lot to me. It has the strength of a religious painting or icon. Also it has a beautiful surreal feel, but very subtle. What a great idea to express this line of thought with a triptych. Yeah, we come, we live and we go. This image leaves a deep silence in me.
