Here's a view from my window. A little bit of sun made it more appealling to sketch. I've never drawn this view before since it always just seemed like too much at once. So many leaves! And tree ferns! So overwhelming. Well, I think I managed to find a way to draw it all without drawing EVRY leaf.

Before Lockdown, we stayed at a classy old-timey hotel in Rotorua. It had hotpools, creaky floors, stained glass and many chandeliers. The restaurant also had a painting of Duke, the man that the restaurant was named after. Clearly though, that was a nickname and is real name was George.

This is the back of the excellent Tanuki’s Cave and Kura cafes behind Auckland’s Queen Street. Sketched with Urban Sketchers Auckland last weekend. Sadly they weren't yet open when we finished, frozen and in need of a hot sake!
So fun to draw all the old bricks, flaky paint etc, especially on the kraft paper. Really nice that everything in this city isn’t completely redeveloped, shiny and corporate
