Studio Sneak Peek

Here is a sneak peak of the latest painting in progress. The second from the Best Island Mai Mai collection. This one features the majority of the Richmond Ranges in Nelson, New Zealand, with a little Mai Mai alone in the foreground. Using subtle blues with hints of green and a touch of warmth, this painting is a more gentle, calming scene.
Michelle is hoping to finish this one in the next couple of weeks.
