This oil painting depicts a G.W.R Bulldog Class
No. 430 “Inchcape” (later 3430), built in 1899, in
express mode. Looks like the fireman is putting
coal on the fire.

    Wow…what a painting..What medium did you use? You are quite the craftsman (craftswoman) the detail is excellent. I thought the steam engines of the 1940s were most interesting but now I better take another look. This is tremendous. Well done to say the least. Regards from Dummy……….

  • Sorry I didn’t reply to your kind comments about my painting before Gene. I must have been away at the time and overlooked it. Thank you. – Olive

    Excellent painting of this colourful train.
    The steam is especially exuberant.
    The proportions of the engine and carriages are wonderful – superb perspective and realism.

  • Thank you very much Colin for your extremely appreciative comments. It make me feel happy you like this painting so much. – Olive

    What a beautiful painting, so very well done!

  • Thank you Carol for your encouraging comment. I really enjoyed painting this, and like you, I have had no formal training and have not been influenced by others to do things in a a, so called, correct way! It is best to paint in your own style which has been developed through your own experience and own improvement. – Olive
