Let’s Sketch New Plymouth’ Informal Aotearoa Urban Sketching weekend 4/5 March

Today was the first day of the 'Informal' Aotearoa Urban Sketching weekend. What a full  on day it was too. Last night we had a dinner and a few of us sketched each other across the table:

Today the early birds started by sketching in the area of the Len Lye Centre. I met up with everyone at Ozone Coffee Roasters. It decided to rain, so we stayed put and sketched. I started sketching a cool leather bag that was hanging up on one of the coat hooks. Trouble was, the owner came and took it before I had finished!

We then went and had a look around the Len Lye Centre and the Govett Brewster Art Gallery. After that? Lunch.

Next stop Pukekura Park. I decided to try the Band rotunda. I've looked at this many times, but I've never tried to sketch it as it is quite intricate. I thought I would be brave today.

And here's a few photos:
