Railway Children – Through the valley
Those were the days! This was the first painting I made from the series and I chose this image of the steam train steaming through the valley with the smoke streaming behind and the bright pink ragged robin all along the line.
I like the dry stone walls on the hillside and I can almost hear the steam whistle as the train chugs through the landscape.
The mixture of coaches was something peculiar to the film. They painted the locomotives and coaches in the colours of an imaginery railway company. For the film and my paintings I’m delighted they did!
