So much talent and inturpretations represented here. I am impressed with all the art work displayed. From the wonderful free hand pencil sketches to the intricate oils and watercolor works, it great to see them all. I hope to get back into my art someday, and it will certainly include British railway subjects.

Thank you everyone, for sharing your art.

Tom

Here's where I am with my Tintern painting, compared to a few weeks ago:

I did some more work to the sky, added some more shadowing and texture to the fields, and have nearly finished painting the station area to

the right. Still a bit more to do though.

Last but not least. Following advice from fellow members of the GRA, Chris revisited Maybach Music to add more to the overture,  in the form of much more clag from the exhausts.

We would be interested in what you think of the difference,  whether you prefer it or not to the original version a few pages back?

FWIW, I prefer the more muted colours of the original, although this may be down to the photo reproduction rather than the actual painting!  The figures on the platform and coaches in the background seem to recede into the background, which, I think, looks better.  I'm also not sure about the exhaust - I feel that diesel exhaust is dirtier than shown - loads of carbon particulates, rather than 'prettified' steaminess.

 

I do like the way the painting captures the 'ripples' in the skin of the locomotive - something which rarely comes over in models.

I think Rob made it clear that the original was 'revisited' rather than re-done, though I agree that this version with darker choking exhaust would look more in character if the Brightness/Contrast adjustment had rendered the same darker, muted tones of the earlier post.

This rather looks to have a similar quality of a white cloud of oily steam from a preserved steam loco which feels so nice enveloping you.

 

As to the 'ripples' in the skin of the locomotive, I particularly remember colleagues commenting how this was much more obvious on these new 'designer' Westerns compared to our own new Deltics when we went across one lunchtime from Kings+ to Paddington to inspect the new arrivals .

A topic that's been a little quiet for while I see (as have I) to be honest. So here's something to get the wheels turning again (no pun intended). An HEA coal hopper,done in brown roller ball pen.

After downloading all of my pictures from Photobucket I rediscovered these two photos of some large paintings that I did over 10 years ago.

 

They were done as backdrops to narrow gauge locos that were put on display in the Apedale Heritage Centre.

I thought I'd revive this thread with a few drawings.

 

A bit of background to the sketches - these were done by my father while working as a sherriff's officer in the Adelaide Magistrates Court (after being a police officer for close to forty years). When things were quiet he would draw various things such as motor vehicles, ships, buildings and especially trains. Most of the drawings were given to a couple of the Magistrates with one of them covering the walls of his office with them. Unfortunately my father didn't keep copies of a lot of the drawings and most of what we still have are some of his more fanciful renderings. He is now 82 years old but still occasionally draws new pictures but his hands are a bit shaky these days.

This is an oil painting that I did in 2006 and framed,  even though I never finished it. The greenery above the adit needs more work, as does the notice board. It was done from a black and white photo, taken by the Ruston & Hornsby official photographer around 1954.

Some of you will have seen Chris’s latest painting as work in progress at Kirkby Stephen, Thirsk, Guildex or Locomotion. A week last Wednesday she made a concerted effort to finish it and here it is.
