|Canton Train Yard, Watercolor on Paper, 11"x14"|
So throughout my time in Asheville I kept saying to my mother, "Can we go to a train yard?"
There were lots of trains going by in Asheville but the consistent motion made it difficult to draw. So Mom thought a bit and drove about half an hour to Canton, North Carolina, where there is a huge paper factory and lots of trains and tracks.
We sat and I worked on this watercolor until it began to rain.
