Rock Island Line at Lasalle Station, Chicago

This painting is from a dramatic photo of the Rock Island Line at Lasalle Station in Chicagotaken by Bruce Fingerhood. The light comes down through the overhead superstructure and makes for an interesting play of light across the train and ground. I like the white star on the front of the train and the sky reflecting off the engine windows. I didn't use any color for the ground instead letting the white paper show through giving the painting greater contrast.
