Among Toronto's beloved streetcar routes, 501 Queen is the centerpiece. At over 15 miles, it is the longest route in Toronto, and one of the longest in the world.
When I rode it yesterday between Spadina and Gladstone, it was so crowded I had to stand facing sideways near the front. I was attracted by a man bundled in his hooded coat, oblivious to everything and dozing off.
I used a dark brown Caran d'Ache Supracolor colored pencil and a water brush to try to capture the window light on his coat.
The water brush helped to unify tones and to soften some of the edges. For example the edge between his back and the seat gets progressively softer from his shoulder downward.
