Again at the swiss transport museum (bought a yearly pass) and attempted the "crocodile", a famous electric locomotive in switzerland. The overall shape of the locomotive is quite simple but I struggled for almost an hour to do the layin for a 3/4 (not shown here). Will definitely re-attempt it at my next visit because it's an incredible piece of equipment.

Spent 1 hour and a half at the train section of the swiss transport museum. Continued to experiment with toned paper and marker. Used Staedler 0.3 and Copic W3. Botched perspective in some sketches. Always more difficult on location than at home.
The Sulzer diesel/electric car was difficult to do. Was surprised by the size of it. I think I almost got the overall shape correct but I couldn't get the details correctly. There is so much going on and I am losing patience quickly and the shortcuts are not effective.
After that, was completely drained so I just sketched some objects from and exhibit showing stationmasters equipement. Looking at the page now, I think the values are not strong enough. I need need to push the black more and maybe put some white. What do you think?
