THIS PAINTING IS SOLD BUT YOU TOO CAN COMMISSION MIKE TO PAINT YOUR VERY OWN ORIGINAL OF YOUR FAVOURITE STEAM LOCOMOTIVE WHETHER BRITISH OR AMERICAN, A SOUND INVESTMENT FROM WHOM MANY REGARD AS BRITAIN’S LEADING TRANSPORT ARTIST. JUST E-MAIL mike@transportartist.co.uk

This is a very early railway painting of mine in acrylics from about 1974 and depicts a French Pacific locomotive as rebuilt by Andre Chapelon the doyen of steam engineers of the 20th century.

The image is too small for reproduction of cards or prints on redbubble but is included here for interest and the fact that this was a beautiful locomotive, so typically French and I’m tempted to make a copy in oils.

I think the original of this image is somewhere in Canada or the USA because I had a very good customer in London, Ontario in those days who bought many pictures of mine of mainly American and French railways.

I would be very interested if anyone who owns one of these early works could contact me with details

    Mike, when I look at this I expect to see ‘GRA’ after your name…

  • Thank you, Rasendyll, I WAS one of the first members many years ago but I suppose I’m not much of a club person, it’s the same with the GMA bless’em, lovely lot but living down in Devon I was always a little cut off from the rest of the membership.
