Auckland Anniversary Day
Sketching with the Esquisse group on Anniversary Day at the Wynyard Quarter. Without a doubt the busiest place around with The Laneway Festival, Seafood Festival, the Anniversary Day Regatta and the International Buskers Festival all on at once. Plenty to draw! I stuck to drawing various vessels which in a way is a bit strange considering people in all their various shapes sizes and outfits were probably the stars of the day.
One of the strangest looking liners I've ever seen, the Celebrity Solstice is also one of the longest liners to visit Auckland this year apparently. It's 314 metres long (Queen Mary 2, also coming this summer, is longer at 345 metres). So long it has to back in.
