I took these pictures of the Waterloo battle, painted in panorama. It looks very real the painter did a very good job. You almost feel in the middle of the battle because while you are looking around you can hear the screams of the injured, the shooting of guns and canons and the neighs of the horses.











Fun on water

I like the colors in the third painting. I like the last photo best, though. That looks like fun!

Such detailed paintings... I tried to focus on the talented hand and not the battle itself, I am glad you didn't include the sound effects!

Mine is up, happy weekend!

Your photos give me the feeling that the panorama is HUGE!

I love the way the artist played with painting and real life foreground. Beautiful work indeed. :)

just watching at your pictures and reading your text I can hear the cries and gun in my mind! The artist did a good job!
Happy Hunter, Gattina!

There is a battle painting in Gettysburg PA from the famous battle in the US Civil War (1863). Ehat I find amazing is the similarities in the terrain (gentle rolling hills and lots of farm land) between Waterloo and Gettysburg, and the death and destruction.

History can always come alive in pictures. I see the lion in the header of your blog!

The detail is amazing. I wonder how the world would be if Napoleon had carried the day?

The paintings of the battle are wonderful... not my favorite subject matter - but terrific paintings none-the-less! The RR photo reminds me of last year when Amanda/Luz and Mom/I got the pedal boats up in Bowie one afternoon! That was so much fun!
