Canterbury as i saw it
Paperback | English
Paintings and drawings by Henry Lowen-Smith
This series of line drawings, pen and wash sketches and oil paintings are part of a collection that I have drawn and painted while living in Ashburton for 70 years and travelling through Canterbury. All drawings were created over the years preceding the earthquakes. To include all of my drawings of the area‘s I have chosen this book would need many pages. I hope to be able to give each area justice in the future. The areas I have included are Banks Peninsula, Christchurch, Ashburton and rural Canterbury scenes from the Waitaki to the Waimakariri, some of the scenes may not have any historical interest, but they are reminders of what our districts and Canterbury have gone through and the progress of each district.
