Artist's Description

This is quite an old painting, one of the artists oldest pieces on this site. It measures 15″ × 10″ and is painted on paper with acrylics. The artwork shows a class 85 electric locomotive at Euston (London) station in the early 1990s. These railway locomotives disappeared shortyly afterwards from the network. It is based on a B/W photo that I took on a 35mm SLR camera and then printed my self (chemically) on to paper using an enlarger. Painting on paper allows one to paint finer details, in a small area than on canvas, due to the absence of the canvas weave. The driver in his cab helps to add interest and anticipation to the composition. I also felt that the ‘straight on’ composition adds a factual, no nonsense feeling to the artwork.

Painted early 1990s.
