17th Light Dragoon Vignette AWI

This vignette doesn't represent any particular incident, but does try to convey a somber side of war. This is one of my favorite vignettes to date, simply because the composition works well. The "stage" effect of the scene, a central focus and what feeling this piece gives, makes this an effective work. I'll post pics of the painted version soon.
