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.
It’s a small clock tower, but I like how it looks lit up with neon at night. I did a quick pencil sketch, made a few colour and other notes, and applied coloured pencil at home.
