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.
