Further information

This sketchbook contains drawings of Werri on the south coast of New South Wales. Included is a sheet of Grade 4 sandpaper cut to page size, which Rees used under the page on which he was drawing, in order to create a texture and to interrupt the otherwise smooth flow of his line.
