Pukekura Park and the Boat shed




Saturday sketching in the Park- always a very pleasant place to be . This view across from the path  that leads to the Bowl of Brooklands covers  the Boat Shed and the smaller of the two bridges .MLB

Colourize Project: Chaos Cafe

If I have the time I've started to add watercolour to sketches. Some of my older ones are getting the colour treatment too.

Pukekura Park


An unforecasted warm afternoon in the park, not a parking spot to be found owing to the huge Tattoo Festival being held at the nearby TSB Stadium

Old slaughterhouse Urenui, North Taranaki NZ

The drive into New Plymouth from the north passes some of the most spectacular road scenery anywhere .
This old building  just on the left as you enter Urenui has fascinated me for a long time ; who used it , what was the population like back then ; is it really as old as it looks .  MLB

A bit of a catch up.

It's been a busy few weeks, so not much sketching work has been getting done. Here's a bit of a catch up:

29th October 2016

Tupare:

Last Saturday we went to Tupare. It was a little cold and windy, so I found a nice sheltered spot and this old lamppost.
I decided to try something a little different this time and did a pencil drawing of the lamppost, and then finished with watercolour. I used plenty of water and let it run.

White Hart Hotel:

The White Hart Hotel. Now restored and looking great.

Pen and wash.

Plymouth Ensemble

Most pleasant listening to the this quartet on a sunny afternoon at Tupare.
