    El tren del fin del mundo (The train at the end of the world)

    Thought I´d skip the sea and ships for a bit. As the title says, this is our little train. The station is about 8 km from my backdoor. It runs on what is left of a track that was laid to haul prisoners to cut wood for the winter.

    I´m not sure about this one. I´ve obviously got a long way to go on every part, but something doesn´t seem quite right. I´ll keep at it for a bit and see if I can get a better feel for it.

    Nice. Can't really see what's off with the painting. Maybe the smoke. Is the train supposed to be moving or standing still? If it's moving, then maybe the smoke should be on the right and growing smaller to the opposite of trains direction - that would give the train sense of movement. I hope you understood what I meant. Can't wait to see the finished piece.

    The composition and perspective look alright to me. Keep going.

    As we say: Il buon giorno si vede dal mattino! (The good day can be seen since the morning!)
    This start implies a great end!

    Fantástico Scott.
    Me encantan los paisajes donde aparezcan trenes!
    He oído bastante acerca de este tren; es el que sale de Esquel o algo así?

    Fantastic Scott.
    I love landscapes with trains!
    I´ve hear so much about this train; this train comes from Esquel, or some like this?

    Thanks vincevancough, RobertSWade, Caesar, damasocl, Rick, and calzgal for your words of encouragement!! Because of them, I´ll keep at it and see what happens. Watch for another update in a bit.

    vince: the smoke is just a quick scribble to give me a feel for placement of things. But thanks for your observation.

    damasocl: este tren no es de Esquel; su origen/estación está a 8 kms de mi casa y el viaje solamente dura una hora y media.
