Original oil painting 7"x5". "Tin Trolly Bus" Model. Still life by Nigel Mason

This painting is part of my daily paintings series. I paint still life objects that are about my studio and paint them from life (not photo's) in one sitting.
A great little machine and a classic icon! I took this one apart and oiled the clockwork. I was surprised to find a large bell over the engine and wondered what it was for. I wound the bus up and ran it along the floor. It travelled along for a while and the bell sounded once - the bus stopped. The bell sounded twice and the is continued it's journey. Fabulous !
