I did a video of me driving up the Furka Pass some years ago!
Do like the passes for a good drive - often find mad cyclists/motorcyclists :)

Well, I did heed advice and took my time on this one - about a month in total, if I 'm not mistaken!

So here is the buffer beam of DR 03 001.

I wonder what type of lighting would have been in the lamps before they were converted to electric bulbs?

Superb! Acrylics again?

You have certainly captured the detail.  :thumbsup:

I used to be indecisive - now I'm not - I don't think.
If a friend seems distant, catch up with them.

Very nice indeed, Matt. Excellent work.

I presume it would have been oil lamps before electric.

Thank you for the comments folks! :thumbsup:

Forget to say, it is acrylic on canvas, 50 cm x 100cm

Cheers

Very impressive Matt.

Did you draw it first in pencil before the actual painting ?

Hi Joe,

Yes, that's exactly how I do it. Here it was at an early stage....

According to Weisbrod/Obermayer (2006:28)* the 03s had electric lighting from new.

The painting looks great, Matt  :thumbsup:

Thank you Mika!

That is interesting, I just assumed steam = no electrics. :-[
