The great Escape

This is a sequel of my "winter blockade". The task was to fit that famous image to a book cover which would require rather drastic changes to its composition and I was little afraid if that would not kill the atmosphere of "Winter Blockade" .I decided to keep "winter blockade" as my personal collection and create another scene almost from a scratch ,with a bit different composition and scale . The book cover was also filled with a character in front , therefore the left side of this image had to remain almost empty. Once the image been used I felt a little dissapointed of form it went out to the world . So I decided to give it alternate ending . I did painted a dinghy and a secret agent inside escapeing from the sea blockade useing a battle as cover .
