Via Rail runs from coast to coast in Canada. It is definitely an interesting way to travel. I like that you can see the country side change, that there are usable bathrooms (unlike the bus) and that you can vape weed the whole way … kidding, you can’t, I asked. They said no but nicely, which I appreciate and respect.
I spent a couple of days on the train recently and decided the shakiness of the train would lend well to drawing exercises. Here are my doodles, with no straight lines!
Obviously I was hungry … luckily Via Rail does have snacks.
At this point the businessman next to me asked if I could draw his cat, so I did. His cat was a siamese with blue eyes. Very handsome. I should have taken a picture of my drawing. Also, I wish Via Rail would give me free train tickets in exchange for drawing passengers’ pets! Eh Via Rail??!!!
