You can read about the painting process here on this page: Making-of “Sound of Silence No. 1”
There is a blog post about the creation of this painting: Making-of “Fox Glacier”
This ist the first of several paintings inspired by the hike around the Abel Tasman National Park.
I have said this before: for me, this place offers the perfect combination of a forest right next to the sea!
My New Year’s Eve walk at Lake Wanaka will always be one of the most beautiful experiences of my life.
This pastel painting was inspired by the flowers we found in the Cardrona valley.
This is the view from the Royal Albatross Centre (Taiaroa Head) across the bay towards Dunedin.
The Aoraki/Pukaki paintings show scenes that took place not even 24 hours apart from each other.
I LOVE Blue. I think I should spend a month in the area around Aoraki / Lake Pukaki just to be able to paint all the shades of blue…
I was so happy to see the New Zealand Christmas Trees on the south island, too! I would really like to grow one in my garden 🙂
This cityscape is a bit different than the landscape paintings because I chose to ‘alienate’ the colours and then also keep it in a very narrow colour range.
The walk from Hahei to Cathedral Cove has left a strong impression in my memory. There were so many stunning views!
This painting was challenging, because I had to make sure that each layer was truly finished before adding the next one.
Our stay at the Bay of Islands felt like a summer holiday, not so much like a road trip. This was also the place where I fell in love with New Zealand’s Christmas tree, the Pohutukawa!
The ‘Thermal Wonderland’ was endlessly fascinating and inspiring for me as an artist – so many interesting minerals and colours and colour combinations.
Give me a big body of water and gorgeous light and I’m inspired!
Inspired by our walk along the edge of the lava flow at the Tongariro National Park.
