How to Draw and Paint Trains Like a Pro

By Mitch Markovitz.

Paperback, 8.25x10.5, 128 glossy pages, many photos and illustrations, drawings, charts.

"From the steam engines that defined America's Industrial Age to the streamlined masterpieces of the Art Deco era and the diesels rocketing through our modern days, trains have again and again tested the industrial designer's art. This book shows casual doodlers and serious rail artists alike how to capture the magic of these design icons with pencil and paper.

" In this new addition to the Motorbooks Studio series, renowned rail illustrator Mitch Markovitz explains the principles needed to draw steam, diesel, and electric locomotives and their trains. He describes the key components of the process--from choosing tools to rendering perspective and proportion, and effectively capturing color and light.

"Illustrated throughout with examples of the author's work, this book is the ultimate resource for railfans with an interest in rendering these behemoths of American industry."
