Canadian Pacific Railway

A few weeks ago I watched a documentary about the history of the Canadian Pacific Railway and found it so fascinating that I felt inspired to paint this watercolor. It is not accurate by historic means but I had some memories of those amazing old bridge-constructions remaining and just tried to bring it to the paper.

043_2019 Watercolor/ FABRIANO® “Disegno 5” fine, ca. 70 x 50 cm / 19.7 x 13.8 in / Lukas Aquarell 1862 “Canadian Pacific Railway bridge at Salmon River”

Vor rein paar Wochen habe ich zufällig eine Dokumentation über die Geschichte der kanadischen Eisenbahn und die Erschließung von British Columbia gesehen und war davon derart fasziniert, dass es mich inspiriert hat, dieses Aquarell zu malen. Es ist nicht besonders geschichtsgetreu, aber mir waren einige alte Bilder von diesen wahnsinnigen Brückenkonstruktionen im Gedächtnis geblieben und so habe ich versucht, dies zu Papier zu bringen.
