Trav and Henry


Oil.  Title, Trav and Henry.  This a a painting from a photo I took long ago - a slide which I digitized awhile back.  I always like this one and several taken that day and so here is the second of those.  Turns out the slide was reversed in the scan so everything is backwards, but only our family might realize that.  For one, the boys hair swirls are on opposite sides and this one is on the wrong side for him. This train of course is one of Thomas the Tank Engine's friends, Henry.  We watched them a lot.  Before the series became popular in fact or had the toys in the stores.  Cathy wrote the company to find out where to find them and they sent two sets, free.  

 I am not quite happy with the skin tones or the hair here. I will probably work more on that someday.
