A note: I wanted to make a birthday card for my son with an Amtrak train. Multiple sketches later, I gave up, and turned to old stream engines: more graphic and fun. Several attempts later, I came to the conclusion that I am not a painter of trains. Eventually I decided to just play, and see what came out, so some of the results became part of the Quick Little Painting series. The one I finally chose is not here, because my son hasn't seen it yet. It is way different and a lot more fun than these!
