Wanganui River hill country and tuis

Had the occasion to drive by myself up the Parapara Road and took the time to stop often to admire the scenery - always looking out for a good photo or idea for drawing.

Maori pa site drawings

I have  had access to a  new book by Nigel Prickett with photos and illustration of Maori pa sites.

I enjoyed drawing some of the ideas as possible future paintings.
