#0941 Lyttleton Harbour
I have a few earlier sketches of the harbour. Kate & I have been walking in the Port Hills, familiarising ourselves with the terrain for the the “Over the top Ride” which is now in full-swing at Otahuna Riding.
Once I got into the swing of this pen I want ed to try it out in all sorts of ways. What is more subtle here is the gradation offered in ArtRage. I wanted the distance to recede more so added a gradient of haze. What I like about the “stencil” that does this is that the result is not purely mechanical & mathematical, the gradient is still produced by hand, but with a bit of help! A tool!
The edition of this image is available exclusively Felt, a rather wonderful New Zealand Art & craft site:
#0933 Virgin Mary Pebble & TÄ« Kouka
Having sketched the Cabbage Tree which flourishes on the New Zealand West Coast and reading about the pebble from the West Coast on Trade me, I put the two together. I think the pebble has nice lines!

I want to keep moving in this direction, beyond this. See the triangles? They are really there (out in the world I mean)! Yet to make them more mathematical and hard edged would be wrong. Getting that landscape down is a goal, though this one is a good start.
Right outside the window.
