Steam train

A good friend of mine went on a day out and took some lovely photos of the stream trains she saw.
She allowed me to use the photos to make a painting.

Here's a picture of the train, followed by my pencil drawing.

I have it in mind to show the majesty and presence of the train by means of it coming through a great cloud of billowing steam.


  1. What a splendid 'beast' this is. Really looking forward to seeing your interpretation Pat.

  2. He is a splendid beastie - and I hope you think by the end of the week that I've one him proud :)

  3. I've always liked trains-- for the first time ever, I don't live near one. I miss the proud whistle. I will enjoy watching the progress on this one.

  4. I bet you do miss the whistle! I hope you like my painting when its done :)
