Don Donovan's World

Ramblings of a much published New Zealand author - 28 August 2012

Leaves From My Sketchbooks. 9. St. Gabriel's, Pawarenga

I found this church locked and lonely high on a somewhat remote, windy hill overlooking Whangape Harbour, Northland. I sat on the higher hill opposite where, wishing I had a third hand to hold my paper steady, I shivered in a keen easterly wind.

I've since had a look at the final rendering in Country Churches of New Zealand and came to the conclusion that it wasn't much better than this quick sketch and a lot less livelier!
