This is the Athabasca River, half way between Jasper and Banff, Alberta Canada, in the late spring. The highway between the 2 towns is called the Icefield Parkway, and for good reason. The view of the glaciers in the mountains is spectacular!
here's my favorite drawings from all 4 life drawing sessions i went to in March. i seem to like the results of the shorter poses more than the long ones. I suppose that makes sense considering i enjoy doing a more gestural approach to drawing figures.i do measure when i have to, but i would rather scribble ha haa
another photo reference (taken by myself) i have had stashed away on the to do list for a while and finally got brave enough to tackle it. this is a scene from Oneonta Gorge, west of Cascade Locks, Oregon, US. Oregon is a beautiful state and i would go back there in a heartbeat!
