It’s an off day in Calgary when you can comfortably walk around in shorts in January, but definitely on point with some casual venturing around the city.  

sixteen fourty miles

Last evening spent in Calgary before starting the roadtrip back to school, catching the sunset at an empty parking deck. Almost my favorite time of the year for sunsets. Couple more weeks and they’re all just perfect. Actually sitting in the car on day two of the drive as I’m writing this. I guess I didn’t properly recall how bumpy the highways actually were, as its making sketching pretty impossible right now.

Kind of loving the pencil & watercolor combination right now.

It’s hard to believe this tradition Aman and I have of wandering the city with cameras and crazy stories is almost three years old now.  Started out at a new location which I kept referring to as our own mini beach before revisiting an old favourite.  Despite the fact that the cute bridge was a bit grown over with trees, and there may have been a wasps nest in the little cove area, this spot still had all the charm it did the first time we stumbled across it.

Casual evening date with graphite turned into late night impulse illustrations with watercolours.  Might spend my last couple weeks before classes making a series out of this - if the idea manages to keep my attention long enough.
