Pukekura Park.

Today we met at Pukekura Park and then split up. The walkers walked and the sketchers sketched around the main lake. I decided to try my new colours and skills from our watercolour lessons in the Wednesday Art Group.

The Pukekura Park Waterfall:
This illuminated artificial waterfall opened in 1970. It was initiated by a gift from the New Zealand Insurance Company to celebrate the opening of its new office building in New Plymouth. The fall represents the Waiwhakaiho River in its passage from its turbulent beginnings on Mt Taranaki. This was a tricky subject. There is a button to push to set it going. I had to get up and push it a couple of times, but mostly passers by were pushing it so I could just sketch.
