Silence at Sundown, Hawkdun Range at Fall's Dam, Central Otago, New Zealand
Original artwork painted with acrylic on cedar framed board

2000 x 1000mm
This painting captures the last touch of Autumn sunlight highlighting the grass with the expansive Hawkdun Range basking in the background.
These little buildings are scattered around the edge of Fall's Dam, some still being used as fisherman huts while others fade slowly into the past.
Fall's Dam is a breathtakingly quiet and peaceful escape. On this still evening only the sound of a few distant sheep intermittently broke the silence.
