Union Pacific #604

I really enjoy painting outside, in artsy talk it’s called en plein air. I can get a better feel of the subjects size, colors and shadows when I’m there looking with my own eyes rather than rely on a photo. I did finish this in my studio so I could put in the details like the lettering. The Roseville rail yard is just a few miles from my house and the view is changing constantly with the coming and going of the trains. I think it’s very interesting, I guess because I’ve liked trains since I was a kid. This is 8″x10″ oil on canvas panel.
