Artist's Description

Not only old buildings have a nostalgic charm – the gates at the entrance to the Wellington wharves opposite the railway station also have character. Artist Al Benge makes the following comments about his sketch.
" These wrought iron gates lend interest to Wellington wharves in this New Zealand scene, and made an interesting subject for my sketchpad, along with pen and ink. The imposing black shapes added formality to the composition, and at the same time remind us about an age when architecture had a sense of style, rather than the bland, somewhat anonymous structures that exist today. All this is only my opinion of course, but I do feel the old gates were worth drawing. And no, I didn’t get blown away by a Wellington Southerly when carrying out my artistic task !"
