Steam at Weybourne

A great painting depicting the sidings Barry , love it

Good work Barry.

Thank you David, an experiment really with plenty of errors but doing it has inspired me and I hope to be doing a few variations on a theme.

Thank you George.

You have an eye for great compositions Barry. you have captured this really well. the hazy atmosphere is great.

Great water colour love the layers, and has inspired me to walk over there with my paints!

Hang on Studio Wall

Playing around this morning with a scene which shows the workshop and sheds as you come into Weybourne station.

Painted on Bockingford 140llb rough half imperial.
