#Art – Train Sketch – Long day

He leans against the clear perspex. Eyes closed. The train sways like a lullaby. It’s been a long day. (Tap on picture to view) In his folded arms, protruding from his satchel a copy of the Herald newspaper. To his right are the main exit doors. This is the afternoon express heading south to Sutherland from Sydney city. 

Sydney trains generally have a top deck, bottom deck, and then a main entry and adjacent  wide space that has seats along each wall. This particular model has clear perspex attached to a yellow handrail that delineates the adjacent seating. In the background on the left the dark space you see is the door  you would open to go into the next carriage. I would have a seat upstairs to have been able to create this one. The pencil is more controlled when I am seated.
