Days 11 and 12

The road between Ottawa and Montreal is quite open,
giving great view of the changing skies.

From a photo in the train series, this is the Montreal West station.
I bought a new block of paper the other day, wouldn't you know it's rough, again?
Sigh. More haste less speed... Hot press. Not hard to remember.

This reminds me how much I dislike cold-press paper.... too much texture...
From the photo series movement...

Well, I thought it a worthy challenge. Hope I'm up to it, even while uploading my first few; colour pencil sketches from my travel series of photographs. I started in colour pencil decades ago, these are Derwent Inktense. The first are dry, second are with a wash.
