All the colours of the rainbow – my day of pure colour indulgence.

I’m not sure I really need an excuse to use pure, bold colour in my work. I have always loved the vibrancy and energy of bold colour and today it really called to me. Here are a series of small works based on the New Zealand landscape.

These works are on 300 gsm paper with an acrylic base, overlayed with soft pastels. Size: 10.5” x 7”

Foxton Estuary
Wild Flowers – Ranges
Through the Hydrangea Bush

Iris and Hydrangeas – finished!

I am pleased to be able to say after weeks of work this large central exhibition piece is  finished!  I have rekindled a real love for plants and flowers over the past month or so, not to mention the use of colour.  I have not settled on a title for this piece but believe it will relate to new beginnings and also reflect old ways of working – it’s been like revisiting a favourite place after many years away – warm and familiar.  Over the next month or so I will be posting the work that will be hanging in my September exhibition at Te Takeretanga o Kura-hau-pō here in Levin, New Zealand.

Onward…toward a September Exhibition.

Have been busy in the studio working towards a September exhibition at Te Takeretanga o Kura-hau-po here in Levin.  With only 8 weeks to go I have lots happening in the studio.  These are a few working shots of my most recent piece.  With the embers of intuitive painting still warm I have carved out this floral composition – something which echoes back to my artistic beginnings.  I am very much enjoying the process and  trying to maintain a freshness of movement and colour as I work.
