Mountain Man

by Mary Fraser
(Montreal)

This is Reinhold Messner ...the only person to climb Mt Everest alone and without oxygen. I did it on 140 paper with 'watercolor crayons' while sitting at an outdoor Montreal cafe . It is a great medium for outdoor sketches and studies . I take them , a few paint brushes and water ,2b pencil ,errasor ect every where . Also when I travel they are all I need .
