If anyone is interested,  my good lady is into railways too but she doesn't make models instead she's a railway artist and I am not lying when I say that she is the talented one in the family.

 This was her third attempt at a railway subject having done a couple of smaller examples to see if she could do it - It's painted in acrylics on canvas and is 30" x 40" in size

 It was painted from a black and white photo that she found on the internet as part of the Glasgow story. She was granted permission to use it and decided to paint part of the scene in sepia while the highlights are in vivid colours.

Thanks Gents, 

I do feel very privileged living in a house full of original railway paintings (we have a few land and seascapes too to balance things out).

I will post a few more for your pleasure.

By coincidence we are going to Kidderminster on Sunday to collect 3 of Chris's works from the Guild of Railway Artists annual exhibition which has been running since August bank Holiday weekend.

:hismiley:Hi there Rob, that is a truly superb piece of art your wife has made, I often think painting from photographs is quite difficult since the artist as to rely on the original camera settings used to capture perspectives when the picture was taken. I like this work very much and look forward to seeing more of her paintings.
Regards Paul
BTW I'm following all your workshop builds with interest, they are a great source of inspiration.:tophat:

This one entitled Shed Bunking, was the next endeavour.

At the time Chris had, had to give up work due to illness and as a goal to focus on she decided to set her sights on becoming a member of the Guild of Railway Artists and in order to do so she need between six and eight works to present for adjudication.


This painting is another that was inspired by a photo (this one by a Gent called Bill Wright who has given Chris 'carte blanche' to use as many of his photos as she wishes). This time of York Shed in the 1960's, however us being us, we wanted something different.

Although I liked the idea of the A1 alongside the V2. But since the A1 wasn't built until 1948, historically the only way that I could have any hint of the LNER was in 1948 when British Rail was formed but it took time to repaint all the stock in BR livery. 

What this meant in terms of the painting versus the original photo ,was changing the identity of the A1, changing the identity and backdating the steam pipes of the V2 to the monoblock versions and removing a BR
Standard 9F from the back ground and replacing it with the A4.


Other changes to the overall scene were the introduction of the doorway where the boys are shed bunking and the wagon and shed foreman looking on.

Again its painted in acrylics on canvas and is 24" x 40" in size

Thanks Paul,
Yes she certainly has creative vision, Chris does all the design work in our house from decoration to garden design. I just create what she designs.

We have had an excellent weekend, the B16 has progressed nicely and we attended Kidderminster Railway Museum today (on the Severn Valley Railway) ostensibly to collect three of Chris's painting that were on exhibition there with the exhibition closing today.
However the Guild Council also met and having presented a portfolio of her works to them, Chris was elected a full member of the Guild of Railway Artists. A great achievement for any artist but I think more so because she's a lady painting what is largely a man's subject. - A very proud moment for me and I only fetch and carry for her. 
To help you celebrate with her here is another of her wonderful paintings (well I think they are wonderful:worship:)

Your other half (5/8ths) has a remarkable talent Rob it puts my effort to shame (not even on the same planet) but no doubt the enjoyment was similar (although she probably wasn't as tinto'd as I was) :thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:

Thanks for the kind words gent they are appreciated by both myself and Chris.


Ian,  that looks mighty fine to me, I doubt I could draw the outline in let alone paint it afterwards - art was never my subject at school

The next painting that I would like to share is one of my many favourites. Chris could have sold this one many times over.
It's called "Should we really be here"
