Katja Schmitt New Zealand Lake Taupo Pastel Painting

New Zealand Memories


This art book takes you on a New Zealand journey of a different kind – through the eyes of an artist.
The book shows you a very individual view of this wonderful country with its impressive nature, in the form of sketches and paintings, enriched with various anecdotes.
„New Zealand Memories“ makes an excellent gift or coffee table book, especially for those who have already been there and still dream of their experiences and the vibrant colours of Aotearoa. To flip through when you feel wanderlust or as inspiration.

In December 2017 and January 2018, my sister Birgitta and I had the great fortune to spend a month in New Zealand and explore this beautiful country.

I recorded my travel impressions on site in sketches and photographs and then processed the experiences at home in the studio with pastels in landscape paintings and in abstract watercolours.
The book contains numerous excerpts from the sketchbooks and all the paintings completed to date.
