|The Old Cookhouse, Albert Town, Wanaka|
It's been a summer for taking my sketchbooks into the hills and filling them with landscape paintings of the beautiful scenery that southern New Zealand is so well known for. Lots and lots of plein air sketching, but almost no urban sketching this year!
So it was such a treat to spend a morning with the Wanaka Painter's Group in Albert Town (just outside Wanaka) sketching the old cookhouse that was once part of the big station next to the Clutha River.
And finally something appropriate for sharing with all of you :-)

We had a great time in Wellington and were spoiled for choice of nice scenes to draw.
We met a good group of interesting people and got to go trough their sketchbooks when catching up in cool cafes. Our Sunday morning meeting point was in Aro valley, we had never been there before and loved it, the best thing was it was just a short walk from the farmers market so we went there for chestnuts and a quick sketch. Thanks Dave, Andrew and all the Wellington Sketchers for the warm welcome!

The view from Island Bay Esplanade on Wellington's south coast. The island is Taputeranga Island, Island Bay's namesake. The quality of light on the south coast is stunning, colours are crisp and bright.
