Take me back Rarotonga!
Rarotonga – what a place to sketch.
It's not just that we've been confined due to Covid-19 for over 2 years, Rarotonga would always be superb. It's tropical, warm, has fantastic beaches, friendly locals and it's only 3 hours from NZ.
We were lucky to get a week there once flight restrictions stopped, it was still a drama with loads of forms to complete and tests to take but all was worth it.
I've bound a super-long hard-cover concertina sketchbook of sketches capturing everything from a sketch from a kayak on the reef, a sketch up 'The Needle' on the cross-island walk, the beach at Vaimanga to tropical fruit, franjipani, teuila and the characters on Captain Tama's cruise.
