Artwork Description

I've always loved transport or working equipment that the weather and hard work have taken a great chunk out of. GM19 sits in a state of disrepair at the Goulburn Railway Heritage Museum, out of service and unlikely to be restored and I've gotten quite close to the old loco over four visits. I didn't mind painting the little graffiti head, possibly painted by a former driver or engineer. However, I had real issues painting the bird droppings on the driver's window I guess as an artist I fall into the trap from time to time of getting to0 involved with the subject. At one point I was going to leave the droppings off but decided that I should as accurately as an artist can, portray the subject in an honest light. Doing so also helps convey the mood in the old round house.

Prints to become available soon due to delay at printing.
