Here is a painting of a Otago scene that I studied in autumn over the years. After a quick glimpse 15 years ago, it called me back. I travelled all day and into the night through storm, chasing the hope of a icing sugar dusting of snow on this fascinating range. I chose to do two similar paintings so that I could explore the intricate light & colour changes during the 'magic hour' before dusk.
This painting showcases the Hawkdun range bathed in warm golden, red hues with the cool blue shadows in stark contrast.
