Steppland Express by Tammara Steppland Express by Tammara
~Quality Prints available for purchase here~ [link]


This is the painting I've been working on for the last month. Normally it doesn't take me as long to get one done but this challenged me for some reason. I think because it's not something I've ever done before. I tried to get all of the doodads and doohickies painted to make it as authentic as possible, but I'm sure I missed some. I know it's not perfect so please don't point out whats wrong with it. As much time as I spent on it I might throw myself on the floor and cry if you do.

This Choochoo train is for my friend Steppeland :iconsteppeland: Look at the detail link and you'll see it even has your name on it!:clap::giggle:

This is so beautiful. It is amazing how you have placed the details just right. I love the realism look that it has. I looks perfect to me. If you have left things out, I cannot tell it and I am from train country.

I love the wintery scene and the snow flying about is so wonderful. Also, the way you have painted the smoke coming out of the stack is just so awesome.

This piece of work holds memories of home in more ways than one. :)

It is perfect, the important thing is that you get the feeling across, the winter spirit and the old
locomotive. I like the trees in the background, they are good. Excellent painting.
