Artwork

Welcome to the Gallery!

See below for all the latest acrylic paintings I have created, as well as some digital art pieces.

Acrylic Paintings

One of my earliest paintings, we see a Chicago, Burlington and Quincy Zephyr clad in stainless steel as it ploughs across the Midwest.
A snowy scene at Butte, Montana, the Butte Special, operated by the Union Pacific, prepares to depart for Salt Lake City, while the Northern Pacific’s North Coast Limited arrives with a train bound for Seattle.
Another painting based on an original photo by Gavin Morrison, we see a Class 150 being turned around at Merthyr Tydfil in Wales as it prepares to head back to Cardiff.
In the mountainous regions of Slovakia, this scene depicts one of the nation’s many narrow-gauge tramways that traverse the hills and valleys.
Requested by a work colleague, this scene depicts the Golden Temple of Amritsar. This was a particularly tricky painting to accomplish due to the detail of the temple itself, but eventually things came nicely into position.
Based on an original photo by Gavin Morrison, this scene depicts a tanker train departing Immingham during December 1988, passing Barnetby as it heads into the sunset.
Again based on an original photo by Gavin Morrison, we see a BR Blue liveried Class 86 at the head of a southbound express on the West Coast Mainline near Stafford.
Crossing the Feather River Valley in California, this scene depicts an eastbound Union Pacific freight.
Attempting to capture a more stylised look at a steam train, this painting illustrates a steam-powered Canadian National express during the 1960s.
A view of the Hudson Valley, this scene depicting the New York Central’s 20th Century Limited heading into the sunset with the Chicago-bound overnight train.
Another stylised look at the profile of a train, here a Denver & Rio Grande Western diesel is depicted sat outside a one-track depot during gloomy conditions.
One of my earliest pieces, we see a snowy scene depicted in the frozen tundra of Norway, as an express passes through on the line between Oslo and Stavanger.
Another painting based off an image by Gavin Morrison, this time we see an InterCity HST passing through a frosty winter’s scene on the Midland Mainline near Leicester.
Another very early piece, we catch a Santa Fe Express passing through Northern Texas.
At Alexandria, Virginia, we see the Crescent Limited to New Orleans taking a break as the lights grow dim.
In gloomy conditions, we see Amtrak’s Empire Builder heading east through the murky Cascades.
My first ever acrylic painting.
