Three Soilders at Korean War Memorial

This is for Virtual Paintout February 2014 challenge, Washington DC. It's oil on 10x10 in canvas panel.

Even though I had lived in the North Eastern part of US for a long time,  I've never ventured into Washington DC asides from transiting at the airport. There're lots of memorials, and the Korean War Memorial caught my eyes. The soilders sculptures had great postures and expressions, plus Google Street Map photos had good lightings. I found this scene (ref) with the three soilders that I thought would make a good painting. I used many of my grey palettes, plus warm white and Naples yellow for highlight.
