Steaming Through The Valley

 

 

Sometimes I go to feed horses in this field (they like apples and Cheesy Quavers). Even when theyíve eaten them they keep head-butting me wanting more and more.


Often a steam train will pass through the valley while Iím there. With smoke belching and many tons of metal shooting along the tracks it quite a dramatic scene - well worth painting. So here 's the scene (in Todmorden) in oil paint.
