Green Meanie features a British sniper pair circa 1990s stalking through a wooded area.
Whilst the sniper pauses to observe for a moment his partner provides cover with his L85A2 assault rifle. The pair are dressed in DPM (Disruptive Pattern Camouflage) combat clothing with a hessian clad concealment vest for camouflage. The L96A1 sniper rifle is illustrated without the bipod fitted and prior to upgrade with its green L13A1 Schmidt & Bender telescope in service.
The painting is in portrait orientation reproduced onto A3+ size 300 gsm fine art paper with an image size of 29.5cm x 42cm.
Contact Front features a British army patrol which is engaging Taliban fighters on the edge of a village in Helmand Province.
The sniper pair in the patrol has gone to ground with the spotter picking out targets through his Avimo binoculars as he directs the sniper’s return fire. He has a claymore bag to hand which is utilised for carrying extra magazines of ammunition for the L96 rifle. The pair are predominantly dressed in desert DPM combat clothing although the spotter is wearing a temperate DPM shirt which was favoured by many snipers, particularly at night. Both are also wearing Osprey Mk2 body armour. For camouflage the L96 sniper rifle is heavily clad in desert tan sniper tape and has its bipod deployed. The rifle is illustrated post mid-life upgrade with the larger L17A1 Schmidt & Bender telescope shown with battle sights removed.
The painting is in landscape orientation reproduced onto A3+ size 300 gsm fine art paper with an image size of 44.5cm x 27cm.
