  • OT Wife's Old Machinery Watercolor

    Mary finished this watercolor recently. A McCormick Deering thrashing machine. Electronic copy doesn't do it justice but here it is anyway. Thought you gearheads might enjoy it.

      Detail is fabulous.

        Doesn't do it justice - Balderdash!

        Using the word Fabulous to describe it doesn't do it justice. I think I must have looked (or maybe starred) at it for maybe 10 minutes just taking in the shapes and details.

        Thanks for sharing.

        cheers, Graham

          Beautiful work, she should have little problem managing good income from such efforts.

            Very nice indeed...great detail, very realistic. Did she use a live model?

            Just be sure to always get the spelling right. Threshing, with an "e" is what happens in the wheat field. Thrashing, with an "a" is what happens in the principal's office at school. Trust me, I know these things.

              That is a very nice treatment of light, texture, form, and mood. Congratulations to you both for having and sharing such talent!

                Fantastic of course I'm a big fan of McD and International.....the galvanic look came out excellent, now maybe we can suggest some crawlers.....LOL

                My wife used to do quite a bit of artwork and was very talented but once the kids and job came along it appears to have sucked those creative juices dry.....poor gal.

                        Fantastic work!Talented lady you have there.

                        Hint:Some here would buy a watercolor of say a Bridgeport or a Southbend and HSM does sell add space reasonable and it is possible to do limited edition prints hint,hint,hint maybe a picture of an old lineshaft driven machineshop?
                        I just need one more tool,just one!

                          to echo what others have said, that looks GREAT! i've seen that type of equipment in real life and i have to say it appears to have been a perfect subject for your wife to paint.

                            The only thing missing from that painting is that it isn't on my wall!

                              Very nice, I'd hang that on my wall with pride.

                              Does she play with machine tools too?
