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.

Paintings I love: Yongsung Kim's The Hand of God

I’m not usually a fan of paintings of Jesus, but I love this one. At first, I thought Jesus was surfing (I can actually imagine him doing that!), but then I realised he was standing on the water, with his hand reaching into it. I love the composition, the colour, the light—and that Jesus’ face is obscured, because we don’t actually know what he looked like.

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.
