High Ball

High Ball

Painted on 140 lb PROART cold press paper

5x7 pad
This is from a B&W photograph in an old railraod mag.
The hardest part was the shadow on the front of the locomotive.
I was really surprised at how well the smoke turned out.
If I were to do anything differently I would have use a larger paper size.

Yes, you should do a larger version of this painting. Otherwise, keep everything else just as it is.

Very good. Attention to detail is exceptional. Details of the engine appear to be spot on in appearance and scale.
