My latest painting project. I’ve just completed two versions of this, this being the second one, done for my own pleasure. This is a 1930s scene on an (imaginary) branchline on the Great Western Railway of England. The locomotive is one of their 41XX Large Prairie Tanks, shown at rest on a late spring afternoon at a branch line locomotive shed modelled loosely on that at Tetbury.
On the evidence of this enamel Mercedes Benz advertisement, I’d tend to say yes. I think the key elements here are: the use of small capitals, a high x-height, curves that are (or appear to be) segments of a true circle and the high mid-bars of the ‘e’s. I also think I can see small rounded corners… or is that just a by-product of the enamelling process.
