What type of piece is this? Painting Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this piece. In July, 2013, I travelled on the Rocky Mountaineer train from Vancouver to Banff, with an overnight stay in Kamloops. I had my travelling art set with me and did some sketches and a watercolour painting, but this one was done after I returned to Australia, from a photo I took during the journey. I used PanPastels, which are my favourite medium and which are so easy to blend.
