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

A common sight at one time on Britain’s roads, not in my lifetime I hasten to add, was the steam traction engine a close relative of the steam roller and ploughing engine. The development of heavier internal combustion engined lorries, especially the oil engine, sounded the death knell for steam as a form of propulsion for road haulage but what a magnificent sight these machines made. I saw this example at a steam rally many years ago and just had to paint it.

A painting like this of your favourite railway scene, British or American, in oils on canvas or board would cost about £2000.
