The tram to Aunty Gerty’s.


What a great painting - I like it a lot!

Thank you David, to be honest it was just an excuse to brush up on my nostalgia.

Lovely painting Brian excellent detail and depth.

I was really please to see this painting as it brought back memories of Sheffield and my grandad who used to work on the trams. Lovely detailed watercolour Brian.

Thank you Bari, I really appreciate your comments. I’m pleased I could stir up some fond memories for you Noel, I’d have loved to exchange places with your grandad for a couple of days.

Lovely controlled washes creating good detail in your painting Brian. A real treat to come across.

Lovely bit of nostalgia - I remember trams well!

Super composition and painting Brian, very nostalgic! We had trolly buses where I grew up but not trams, good memories.

Excellent painting and beautifully painted, the detailing is superb I like this a lot Brian.

Thank you Frank. Thank you Heather & Tessa, painting it took me back to my childhood for a couple of hours though my wife insists its more that I've reached that age and little to do with nostalgia! Thank you Paul I must admit I enjoyed letting my hair down with the detail on the tram..

Such fascinating detail in this one, Brian, Great work!

Thank you Thalia.
