I had a great time walking around, trying to decide what to paint and eventually settled on this smaller engine off to the side. I wanted to recreate the energy of this engine from its heyday so, I decided to paint it from the front, just as it is going to pass by. I could almost feel the gust of air it would kick up.
Perhaps your dad is a train enthusiast too. If you think he would enjoy having this plein air painting contact me through my website at www.sharonweaver.com or click on "Iron Horse."

I have thought about painting a train from the front view also but never have put it on canvas as of yet. Keep Painting.
I really like this painting. My father worked for the rail road so riding the train was something I was familiar with as a child. Yes, you can 'feel' the woosh of air as the train passes (and smell the smoke too!).
Well done. I look forward to more like this.
Thanks for sharing.
Thank you both. Painting this was great fun and took me back to remembering my dad. Good stuff.
