Bare trees caught the sun in the late afternoon in The Gully where we graze the horses.

Later: 3 June 2008, have presented this image in the Gallery – tweaked it slightly, but it remains #0541. The image above is linked from the images in the gallery, making the database and thumbnails even more “organic”.

There are quite a few sketches of Mt. Lyford our holiday house is right under that mountain – this is the view from the deck. We have just had three days up there. A good time for Kate & I – we will be apart for 5 weeks so we made the best of it. Kate is in Australia and I will be off to the USA on the 25th. When I get back I will just about live up there for a few more months so I will get let this mountain inspire me.

These are in the wrong order. I did this one before the last one. One thing does lead to another, I like that. On this occasion I like this one better than the second.

Lead pencil plus oil? Seems ok here but might seem wrong in real media?

The memory is of childhood in the Netherlands. Though it may well be a false memory, perhaps buildt on pictures from the Netherlands.

It was not really half way on the walk, but it is a nice title for the sketch anyway. And it is half way through the 1000 – I may be a bit behind, but pleased to have made it thus far.

On a recent walking trip with friends from to Sumner to Taylors Mistake and back.

I have this under Landscape (category) but it is imaginal. I am enjoying this one, but it irritates me too, I might make another version of it. And do some more in the style.

A while back I made a podcast while looking at this view, noticing the triangles. I said I’d draw it then, and I have.

As you get closer to Aoraki on the road to Ball Shelter it becomes impossible to see the mountain as it is blocked by the Wakefield range. Climbing up the moraine walls by the Blue Lakes gave me a glimpse as there were gaps in the cloud.
