The " Flying Scotsman", more than just "transport"!

Ce sa, complete, do you approve ?                         FS_full_IMG_5712_c_d.jpg

This is the second time I have painted a train and the first time the train has been the primary feature in one of my paintings.

I am delighted to have painted such a famous engine.

There are so many ways she could have been shown, the choice was difficult and it would take very little encouragement to have me paint more trains!

My previous effort was “Lady of the Lake” as detail,a very detailed and carefully researched detail  in the Port of Chester 1863 http://www.frickers.co.uk/marine-art/chester.html 

As with the Port of Chester, this painting will be available as a limited edition.

You can reserve a copy by going to  page http://www.frickers.co.uk/contact.html and leaving a message.

The location is very familiar to most Westcountry people, the Tamar river and valley, Saltash, IK Brunell’s Royal Albert Bridge, built over 100 years ago connecting Devon and Cornwall one of his master pieces.

If you are unfamiliar with the location you may like to know, The Flying Scotsman is shown here on a misty May afternoon, having just left Saltash, Cornwall, is entering “England” and on track for Devonport and Plymouth.

The event shown never took place.

The Flying Scotsman has run in Devon and Cornwall.

Maybe inspired following this painting this world famous engine The Flying Scotsman No 4472, will do so again with Pullman coaches?
