Wellington Rowing Club




This is a drawing of my rowing club in Aotearoa. The building is a registered heritage building and has a unique wooden style. I went out to do some sketches and when I returned I was locked out of the club. With my sketchpad and pen I waited outside to be let in and during this time I sketched the building.

What I Learnt

Working with pen and paper usually result in frustration for me. this was one of the first drawings that I enjoyed.  I didn’t have an eraser and that was key for me as I had to work with my mistakes.

Programs Used

This drawing was created on paper using a fine ink pen. I was able to get a digital re-creation by using a scanner. I then used Adobe Photoshop to remove grain from the  scanner and ink smudges
