Lake Manapouri and Dart River sketches

A miniature sketch of Lake Manapouri on New Zealand's South Island (4 x 6 cm).

A (even more ) minature sketch of the Dart River valley near Queenstown (3 x 5cm).

These were done from a photos, not on location. Using 185 gsm paper has made me realise that I should get something heavier in the 200 - 300s, or learn to stretch my paper. I'm practising mixing greys from different opposing colours, rather than just using a grey from the tube.
