Stroudley's Improved Engine Green by 

The first of a series of paintings of pre-grouping (will make sense to UK Train enthusiasts, but basically pre 1923) locomotives I painted a few years ago. If people like this one I might get the others scanned. This is an E2 4-4-0 of the London, Brighton and South Coast in a livery described by their engineer, William Stroudley as "Improved Engine Green. Yes, I know, it isn’t green, but I think it suits the loco all the same.

    Preferred Marshes Umber myself on Brighton Locos………LOL.
    Ive browsed through all your loco paintings, and they are good to say the least. I think I like Iron Duke best, but this comes a very close second – Grand Work
    (from a self confessed Southern England loco nutcase)

    Graeme- I suspect I always like the incongruity of the Stroudley livery…such an unlikely colour to paint a locomotive. Thanks for the kind words.

    I must admit my own obsession lies slightly more in a western direction, but I try to vary my subject matter-theres a limit to how often you can paint works featuring Brunswick green, copper chimney cap and brass safety valve bonnet!
