first coffee

Late last night I had this idea for a “full Overlap”.

Then this morning, over first coffees, this second plan just sort of happened.

I quite like them both and certainly they felt like nice things to place into the sketchbook.

  1. Oh… That long meandering siding in The Portage Tramway Scheme is a nice feature. A short train could take forever to get to the end of it.

    • And this is one of those things I find so enticing about this concept. By this arrangement a train traverses the scene almost twice. While working in the front scene the length of run is only short and precise while the movement across the back is more bucolic. I feel like, at least while imagining this and tracing “op’s” on paper it feels like a longer run and also two different personalities within the same envelope.
