Pen sketches from Titirangi Beach

These are some sketches I did at the little park just back from Titirangi Beach this morning. I also tried to draw a park bench (it was simple geometric shapes) but couldn’t get the perspective right and threw those drawings out in disgust. Probably could’ve got it with another couple of tries, but I was ready to go home. 🙂

Note: Click the first one to see the full sketch. I found the shapes the tree trunks created quite interesting.

I’m away from my paints at the moment, so I’m just doing sketches. I did this one on a Bockingford Sketch Pad. I found the texture a little bit off-putting, but maybe I’ll grow to like it. Possibly I need to try a different (harder) pencil.
