    I've just finished this painting 'Class 37 at Grangemouth 1976'. This took me around 5 mouths to complete using watercolour and ink. This is my 1st attempt at painting a Diesel and its been a nice break from painting steam.
    On my website link below you can see you can see several stages on how I built the painting up from start to finish, signed limited edition prints are also available from this website too. https://www.jamesgreenart.co.uk/work...gress/37-class
    Thanks for looking James Green

    That’s incredible, so tempted to purchase a print. Maybe for new house once moved in.

    I agree, a superb painting. It is so hard to find paintings of locos other than steam, it’s a refreshing change.

    There's not a lot more that I can add really...except to say what a truly exceptional piece of work! The front end of the class 37 almost appears 3 dimensional, not to mention the great attention to detail and colour which gives the picture a magical atmosphere. Well done!
