Artist's Description

This is an oil painting of a traction engine at a summer steam fair in Dorset,UK. The engine is a Ransomes Sims & Jefferies General Purpose Engine built in 1931 in Britain. It is named ‘Velfrey Queen’. The engine consisted of colourful, shiny deep green paintwork matched with well polished brass and copper fittings. The flags (UK and Wales) were in celebration of a recent football match. Care has to be taken when painting a subject like this. It has to be portrayed correctly with all the right parts there and in perpective as well. The ellipses are difficult to do and there are many to draw and paint on a subject like this. It was fun painting the shiny copper and brass parts and highlights. The painting is in oils on a 20" x16" canvas.
