Hi this is my latest painting in Pastel Pencils and thanks to Colin Bradley who gave me the tutorial to be able to paint this picture, steam trains are my passion or they where back in the 60s but thanks to Beachem he did away with them anyway I hope you like it as much I did in painting it

Beautifully executed Ray.  O0

I agree, I love the old steam engines. When we were growing up, my brothers had a train set. They tended to migrate towards the more flashy diesel engines while I just had my little green steam engine with its coal car and caboose! I haven't thought of that little train in a long while. Thanks for the memory.  :1hug:    :clap: :clap: :clap:

 :clap: :clap:  One can almost hear the chug-chugging of the train and feel its speed, which is depicted by the billowing smoke. Lovely painting, Ray.

Excellent painting, Ray :clap: :clap: :clap: Just add some shadows in the steam to give it volume. I suggest you add a puff of steam at the plungers to give it more action  O0
