Ruataniwha Inlet

Ruataniwha Inlet- Golden Bay NZ_7214895830_l

2004

Oil on canvas 30 x 60 cm

From high in the hills west of Collingwood in Golden Bay, I used my artistic licence to clear the foreground bush, graze a few sheep, and give a golden late afternoon glow to the inlet and the rest of the Bay beyond. The broad palette knife technique gives the impression of vast expanses of land, sea and sky, much as a bird soaring on high might view the scene.
