Government House Gardens

We had  a great day sketching the Governor General's house and gardens.
The message afterwards was that Dame Patsy Reddy was most impressed, and invited us to return in the Spring when the gardens would be blooming.























 

Ponsonby Central

 We visited one of Auckland's favourite foodiedestinations - Ponsonby Central.

The cool breeze and rain didn't bother us, and there was lots to sketch at every turn... plus a nice finish with beverages and Turkish coffee afterwards!

Port Taranaki Boat Ramp

I had a sheltered spot out of the winter breeze at Port Taranaki. Exposed people were still launching boats and walking to the end of the breakwater.

Urban Sketchers freeze at the High Court


A good turn out for last weekends meet at the High Court. Court was closed on a Saturday but we're still looking for whose liable for the cold southerly that so successfully made sketchers fingers too cold to continue. We started to lose sketchers two hours in so an appeal was made to wind up proceedings early so we'd still have enough left for a group shot! Finally adjourning to Mezze Bar in Durham lane to warm up.
