Painting a landscape on location, in ever-changing conditions, is an intense experience, to capture the feeling and spirit of a particular time and place. To feel the heat of the day, to smell the dust or the scent of approaching rain, pine needles, the sweet smell of silage, the glare of the sun on water. The studio allows time to create depth, to work a larger canvas, creating big skies and allowing the eye to follow trails across the scene.

I am drawn to our local landscapes, the grand vistas and tick box locations I leave for others while I try to capture those we drive past everyday, glance at over the fence or catch out the laundry window on an early morning. I started painting young, in oils, and have always done so. The richness and depth of colours attracts me and the smell is the icing on the cake.

The Otago Rail Trail

A bucket list holiday tour of Japan in mid 2020 was, of course, nullified by the arrival of Covid. Plan B courtesy of the tour company, was travelling the Otago Rail Trail (just a little further down the bucket list) which was undertaken in November 2020. As a first time visitor to Central Otago the big skies and big landscapes did not disappoint. A couple of days in Queenstown followed by 5 days on a bike with painting and sketching supplies on board was the catalyst of this collection of works.
