Evans Bay at Sunset

I finally got back out painting after many weeks of busy work.
Went up Maupuia for an hour to catch a sunset.  A bit sloppy but I was happy with the colors in general considering I couldn't see much in the dark.

the Sea Lion

I did this quick sketch down on the Wellington waterfront of one of the boats that seems to be permanently docked there. There are a lot of interesting structures to paint down there, but also quite a bit of foot traffic to contend with.  This was done with watercolour pencil and brush and I spent about 30 minutes.
