I like the idea of a series of sketches from the road between Christchurch and our place in North Canterbury at Mt. Lyford – this one is from a photo looking back as we went home last time in the late evening. Just after Waiau I think.

I watched a video of David Hockney last night – really liked it. One painting “Mulholland Drive” was discussed and I appreciated the way he can give an artists impression of an experience. Perhaps this sort of sketch (though with the robotic Cyclops eye) might lead to me being able to do a hotter version – one with my experience in it more fully.

For all that this one has an emerging signature in it, one that I can now see in a few of the landscapes. I have not finished exploring this style!
