Last Steam Train

The last commercial steam locomotive services finished in Britain in 1968. I was fortunate enough to have experienced and grown up in the age of steam albeit at the end of that era. I did this impressionistic version of the Last Steam Train today which brought back a lot of memories.

The other day I was fortunate enough to have a good look at a painting by Donald Ayres. He is a traditional painter with a style not unlike mine (although he  may not be thrilled to be compared to me). Donald has moved around but lived for a time in Carmarthenshire in the 1970's and many of his subjects were based on the area.
I provide a link to his website below:
