Back of Beyond

Back of Beyond

Here is 'Back of Beyond', emerging over the final ridge before plunging down into the Arnst River valley you come across what seems like paradise. The Paratītahi Tarns sit together, nestled in a gentle rolling basin of tussock with a glimpse of Mt Chittenden (2205m) in the far distance.
This painting is a labour of love. Many many hours were spent shaping the golden contours, detailing the scree slopes and blending the blues to take you back towards the distant mountains. Every day working on this painting took me up into the ranges and I hope it takes you there too.
