Military


A definitive range of Military art by Karl Nash.  Each piece is presented as a highly detailed graphite pencil drawing onto paper capturing the individualism of each subject. The military subjects are recreated using pencil and can take in excess of some 60 hours to complete. My goal is to achieve an almost photograph result by studying the subject in depth in order to extract as much detail as possible. Originals of a selection of the artwork displayed are still available for purchase. Please contact me for more information or if you would like a military commission.

Commissions of military subjects start at £300.

Each drawing is produced on Heavyweight Cartridge paper.

Please check back as my website is updated regularly with new artwork.

 Dimensions of artwork: A3 (42cm x 29.7cm) unless stated otherwise.
