The Lancashire Fusilier
I used a canvas 20"x 16" and painted in oils. My inspiration was being a train spotter as a child in England and naturally wanted to paint steam locos when I started painting 11 months ago at the age of 72. Also my great inspirational painter is David Shepherd, whose love of trains and animals is known to most people.
The most challenging thing was the various details on the train and are they correct technically. This is my second painting of a steam loco and this one is more detailed in every way including the landscape, which is so different than our Australin landscape.
I am basically pleased with the overall features of the painting and I believe one keeps trying to improve in everyway, especially as I am in my infancy regarding painting and need to put in a tremendous milage.
