Work in Progress
'Merddin Emrys at Boston Lodge'
The first in a series of 'wide screen' illustrations featuring various aspects of the narrow gauge and miniature steam railway scene. This drawing features the Ffestiniog Railway's double Fairlie locomotive hauling the vintage Train enroute to Porthmadog pictured on the curve at the railway's workshops at Boston Lodge.
These drawings will ultimately be reproduced as prints
Initial line work underway with vintage train stock behind the locomotive.
Close up of locomotive detail - 'Merddin Emrys' is the main feature with 'David Lloyd George' featured outside the locomotive shed. Must remember to add the lamp to the front bracket!
Detail added to carriage No 19 - these have very elaborate panelling which is a challenge to reproduce at this perspective angle.
Organised chaos! Oodles of reference material which is never detailed enough!!
