Here is a painting of a Otago scene that I studied in autumn this year. After a quick glimpse 10 years ago, it called me back. I drove 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 light & colour changes during the 'magic hour' before dusk.
This painting is at the start of the process, showcasing the Hawkdun range in golden hues and stark contrast.
