Steam.

Inspired by Gramp's magnificent oil work of a train, I decided to attempt one of my favourite steam train paintings by Claude Monet. Au unashamed copy, I didn't try for detail or perfection, but more the mood that Monet managed to create so that I could almost smell the railway station. I also used watercolour where the original was a n oil painting, but I enjoyed the challenge.

Indeed, indeed, Repentance oft before, I swore---but was I sober when I swore?
And then and then came Spring, and Rose-in-hand, My thread-bare Penitence apieces tore.

Here's the one I used as a reference. As I said, I didn't try for detailed copying, I didn't want that, just the mood.:
