We stopped in Ngatea for about 10 minutes today, and I took the opportunity to do this quick sketch. Here’s a photo of the sculpture, from the other side.

I saw this silhouette from inside, on the same night as I did the night-time sketches. I really like the atmosphere created by the very close values at night.
For fun, I went outside the other night and did some sketches. I could barely see what I was doing (I didn’t have a torch, only the moonlight), so I focused on the subject, and did them very quickly. I actually quite like how some of them came out—especially some of the marks I made.
These are just awesome. Saw some in a shop today and they’re beautifully crafted and lovely to hold. I don’t know that I could bring myself to write or draw with one and wear it down though. They’re a work of art! Make sure you check out all the collections.
