Lorna Ward has recently retired on the Kapiti Coast meaning more time for art work.

Whilst Lorna works in a number of media, at this stage of her art interests, Lorna enjoys detailed graphite and colour pencil work.

Here’s what she says about this week’s Art Work: The kingfisher is coloured pencil on water colour paper. It is drawn from a photo taken by Roger Smith of Waikanae Beach (with his permission).

The kingfisher is one of two who live at the Waikanae River estuary lagoon and Roger regularly goes and photographs them.
