Since seeing the documentary about the Krait on the ABC the story has stayed with me.  I wanted to convey with this painting my impressions and interpretation of the Krait.

The long perilous journey in this small camouflaged vessel is testament to the resilience and bravery of the men in the Z Special Unit. Against all odds, successfully carrying out this daring military raid with basic equipment under the cover of darkness.
