Another of my “Triang imagined as real” paintings. This time it’s the Transcontinental Switcher, inspired particularly by Stephen Jack’s recent post.
Snowshill in the Cotswolds – digital pencil and wash drawing inspired by Nina Ula’s photograph (thanks Nina!).
Just finished my latest (digital) painting – “Elizabethan Express”.
The Elizabethan Express leaves Kings Cross for Edinburgh in 1954, hauled by Gresley’s A4 Class Pacific, British Railways No. 60017 ‘Silver Fox’, one of the original 4 A4s built for the SilverJubilee service in 1935.
This painting was inspired by a still taken from the 1954 British Transport Commission short film “Elizabethan Express”.
Paul’s antidote to hot Perth weather at Christmas…
Just finished this painting. It is my attempt at a looser, more impressionist style city scene. This is Moir’s (later T&G) chambers on the corner of St George’s Terrace and Barrack Street, Perth, Western Australia, as it looked in the 1950’s.
Sadly, a building which was regarded as one of the finest in Perth was demolished in 1960, in the face of much protest, to make way for another unappealing concrete office block.
I had a lot of fun doing this and think I managed to stay true to my idea of painting with less precise detail.
The Mill at Lower Slaughter in the Cotswolds, inspired by Chris Moore’s Photograph.
“Ready for the Off” Two Ex-GWR Castle Class locomotives leaving Paddington circa 1959, inspired by Peter Gricerman’s photograph.
