Bardot is a nick name of this legendary Czech locomotive. Some people say that the nick name originated in its front fenders. My guess is, that the name has a lot to do with the 1959 essay by Simone de Beauvoir who declared French actress Brigitte Bardot the "Locomotive of the womens history".
You always know, when BB loco is somewhere around, because there is a specific gurgitation whenever the train gets in motion.
I drew this study of the Bardot locomotive with simple charcoal sticks. The aim of my studies is to catch the lines in my fingers before I start laying them down on canvas. This medium is new to my "Famous Czech locomotives" collection in which I experiment with various styles and media on the motive of very classic locomotives.
