#0976 Mt Pete
I am at Vic’s cafe in Christchurch. Pleased to be working on my blog at the end of my sabbatical. I have a few to post up! A few of the ones I am posting, perhaps all of them, are on the theme of Return. I am coming to the end of my project, hence returning to work, to normal, to the familiar. Mt Pete is familiar, we see it from the other side of our house, its moods never the same.

I am posting on the 8th November – but these were done almost a week ago at Mt. Lyford. Since then the exhibit has gone up and we had a good opening night!
The year of sketching is coming to a close and one thing on my mind in this last leg is to return. Return in many ways, to the earlier sketches, and to normal life!
Here is an earlier Kowhai.
From about a year ago.

Spring snow. Yes that is snow on the deck.
Have been working with this one for a while, resurrected it. Thinking about pastel. A while back someone said that my landscape pastels reminded them of Wolf Kahn.

I have made the image square:
Some of his Kahn’s images (poor snaps) follow.

#0845 Evening Landscape
I want to keep moving in this direction, beyond this. See the triangles? They are really there (out in the world I mean)! Yet to make them more mathematical and hard edged would be wrong. Getting that landscape down is a goal, though this one is a good start.
