Six Sisters Bathed in Light

The A4 was designed by Sir Nigel Gresley, and subsequently named after him, he was the man behind the other icon of British steam history, The Flying Scotsman. A total of 35 A4 locomotives were built in Doncaster between 1935 and 1938.

Six surviving engines - Dwight D Eisenhower, Mallard, Bittern, Union of South Africa, Dominion of Canada and Sir Nigel Gresley - were brought together at The National Railway Museum in York for the first time in July 2013.

Dwight D Eisenhower and Dominion of Canada traveled from America and Canada respectively for the momentous occasion. They underwent restoration to bring them back to their original liveries by teams from the NRM.

Six Sisters Bathed in Light, was constructed using my own photographs, taken in July 2013. I visualised what the image would look like by removing the people and the image was painted in a watercolour and acrylic mix. It took around 180 hours to complete and it is my largest painting so far.

Six Sisters Bathed in Light measures 30 inches x 22 inches.

All Limited Edition Prints are printed on 190 gsm Archival Paper.
