The Bicycle Specialist, Amherst, Nova Scotia

Drawing of The Bicycle Specialist, Amherst, Nova Scotia. Finished up this sketch with a 2B mechanical pencil. My Mini Cooper Clubman was challenging; cars are hard to get right. 0.9 mm 2B pencil — 5 ¾ × 8 ¾″ Stillman & Birn Gamma (ivory/150 gsm).

Houses with Kubota tractor

Series of shots of this work in progress; pencil, Carbon fountain pen, watercolour, in 8 ¼ × 3 ½″ Global Art Materials trav•e•logue hand•book. Had to include the Kubota tractor. Some pencil studies in a Moleskine drawing pad before starting the watercolour. The tractor is much bigger here than in the painting.
