INTRODUCTION
The Battle of Kliszów (Klissow) (Klezow) took place on July 8 (Julian calendar) / July 9 (Swedish calendar) / July 19, 1702 (Gregorian calendar) near Kliszów, Poland-Lithuania, during the Great Northern War. The numerically superior Polish-Saxon army of August II the Strong, operating from an advantageous defensive position, was defeated by a Swedish army half its size under the command of King Charles XII.

50 cm x 50 cm @ 300 DPI
The project was made with the aim of printing on clothes. Main theme was Battle of Kliszów in 1702.

I used images of Augustus II the Strong and Charles XII of Sweden. Also I used images of Hussars and the Swedish army.
For each of the images I used Pallete Knife filter and then I masked them with Kyle's Basic Sable Inker brush (by the way, great brushes - https://www.kylebrush.com/). In results, I got brush marks effect, seemed unfinished.

The background is in the shape of Polish territory at that time. The red color symbolizes Poland and blood. I used Kyle's Basic Watercolor Round brush.
