Trip of a life time – Canada/Alaska

Max and I have just returned from a 19 day APT tour of Canada and Alaska. It involved bus, train and ship and was truly the trip of a lifetime for me. Such a beautiful country Canada is and the train trip through the Rockies is breathtaking. Also the cruise up the Inside Passage to Alaska was a highlight.

I had great intentions of painting lots of pictures whilst travelling, but of course that is not practical when on a tour. However, I managed to get a couple of quick pics done and hope to complete more now that I am home.

The first is a pencil drawing of the view from the Rocky Mountaineer train. We were held up for two hours due to a freight train break down. 

The next three are quick pastel drawings – Lake Morraine, the inside passage and a glacier in Alaska.

Finally, The Cards

With Christmas and New Year over (hope you all had a happy one) I finally have time to post my printed cards of the ‘What’s Real’ series. They are 5″ x 7″ (A5) size on 250g card, a really good firm card stock.  Momento was the printing company I used in Australia and they were delivered within three days!  That is 60 cards with 10 x 6 different designs. Also I experimented with two journals with a watercolour image of mine on the cover.

You can view them in my Etsy Shop (see above left for link), but here is a preview;
