PAINTING OF THE WEEK - Rusty Relic

 Rusty Relic - coloured pencil on watercolour paper

 Painting status: available please see Gallery and contact me

 This narrow gauge engine was spotted in North Wales just asking to be painted, with all those lovely rusty colours.  I decided to use artists' coloured pencils, mainly Faber Castell Polychromos with a few others, on textured watercolour paper to convey the rough and rusty texture of the engine.  Also this medium also brings out all the sublty of colours which were a joy to capture.  The greenish foliage behind helps enhance the range of reds, browns and purples.

A very beautifully drawn rusting narrow gauge engine.
