Here are some recent sketches of places around Totara North where I live.
One of the old boat sheds down at the harbour. I sat in the warm sun on the wharf drawing this while Dad was working on a boat below.
I started a few drawings at the old Mill which is closed down now and all derelict and sad. It started raining so I had to come into one of the big sheds and draw a little office building from inside.
A pump shed at the Mill.
This old dark green building at the Mill attracted me with its boarded up windows and sway backed roof. I also liked the way the trees in the bank behind it seemed to be hugging protectively.
I drew all these drawings on 11 x 14 Strathmore toned drawing paper using charcoal pencils.
