Emerging (Syd's Tribute)

That's a great painting Brian, 😀

Fabulous painting Bri and a fitting tribute for Syd

This is beautiful. A powerful painting.

Lovely image Brian, Turner comes to mind.

Thank you very much, Linda, Russell, Ellen and Marjorie, for the kind comments. Always appreciated. I'd never tackled a train before, and enjoyed it more than expected. I'll take Turner any day of the week Marjorie. *smile* Best to all Bri

This is stunning, Brian. A very impressive image!

A fitting tribute Brian, lovely free and loose.

What a great approach to this painting. Love itBrian.

Fine work Brian. Caught the scene really well.

Gosh Brian that is brilliant! You have depicted the steam so well, Syd would have loved it I'm sure.

This is great Brian, it reminds me of the line on the coast at Dawlish with the sea crashing over the rails.

That's a great image Brian.

This is amazing, and even better that you enjoyed doing it.

What an amazing response! Thank you very much, Mia, Barry, Carole, Jim, Margaret, Lynn, Margaret N, Val, Jennifer and Annick, for the great comments. Very much appreciated indeed. I think we've all been touched by Syd's passing, even though many of us didn't know him personally. Still, when a fellow artist and online friend tips his hat for the last time you can't help but feel sad. Best to all Bri

A fine tribute and painting Brian.

Thanks, Fiona. Appreciated. Bri

Beautiful tribute Brian.

Thank you, Carole. I might finish this one with oils and add some extra detail to the steam and surroundings. Still thinking about it, though. Bri

Hang on Studio Wall

Acrylic on canvas, 30 x 23 cms. This is a fast and loose painting to try and catch the moment of emergence, and it honours the memory of Syd with a trip on The Flying Scotsman.
