    Hi,

    Recently I discovered a digital painting I did back in 2009 and was asked which art program I used. I remembered it was this one! I don't paint very much but have been asked to create a large canvas from this sketch. I was so impressed by Twisted Brush's ability to create authentic-looking brush strokes. It's inspired me. If I get some time I'll paint a much larger canvas of "Train passing unseen". I find that my mobile gives the truest colours when looking at the painting. I hope you llike it.

    Thankyou Robert. That's a strange coincidence. The first person to like this painting when I posted it on facebook several days back was a friend called Lee Robert McStein. Synchronicity abounds!
    I hope to find time to check the gallery tomorrow, hope I see some of your work. Cheers.

    Cheers, Don. Yep, my painting harks back to the days of steam and the romance of travel that has now passed.

    I would like to be riding the train, viewing the pretty scenery.

    Happy painting,

    Hi Stuart and welcome back! I love trains and I love your scene. The colours are so restful with the active train passing through, it's a really nice effect and I can imagine living in that quiet day with only the sounds of birds and the train. I found, when young, that traveling in trains was a nice relaxed way to travel. Love your sky! :) Robyn

    Thank you Robyn. That's great that the picture resonates with your love for trains. When painting it I imagined an almost plaintive whistle from the train caught on the breeze, adding to the stillness and owl sounds surrounding this passing locomotive. I imagined how many moments like this went unsen in the past. The sky was done at such speed, it was instinctive and I really did not have time to stop and only later realised it would pass muster.

    Hi Stuart, great to see your work. Im love train travel and as a young girl used to travel on the puffing billy to Johannesburg in South Africa. Brings back wonderful memories. Hope to see more of your work.

    Vivienne I'm touched that my painting brings back memories of your days train-travelling :) I think there is something magical that we've lost and travel has no romance, but memories keep the trains, like "Billy" puffing along even if only in imagination. Thank you :)
    Stuart.
