Mid Morning Mai Mai

Here is the completed piece, Mid Morning Mai Mai, Best Island in the Waimea Estuary, Nelson, New Zealand. Michelle has always wanted to explore her hometown in her work, and her latest paintings feature the beautiful surrounds of the Nelson Bays. With delicate layers of acrylic paint, she builds subtle colours and intricate detail in this painting. With soft hues of green and blue she portrays the Richmond Ranges, that have been her playground over the years.
