Old Train Depot, Elizabeth, New Jersey

Train Depots are slowly disappearing, and whenever I run into one, I make sure I put my camera to work. Later, the camera delegates to the brush for the next step.

  1. Your brushes were certainly up to the task! they did a great job in creatings the mood of the painting with the rendering of the sky and the overall values. It is a gem of a painting.

  2. I also like train depots. Too bad so many of the beautiful stations of the past are no longer. Nice painting. Also, the Asheville church is done well. I enjoy your stuff!

  3. Thank you Bill and Terry for your comments. I recommend a great book by Ranulph Bye (1916-2003), "The Vanishing Depot" where he paints many of the old train stations that dot the Northeast, especially New Jersey and Pennsylvania. And, best of all - forgive the bias - they are all painted in watercolor!
