Hagley Park sunset – Christchurch, 2010.

A last-minute sketch of the last minutes of a sunset in Hagley Park (because the acrylic painting I had planned to post today isn’t quite finished yet). I hope you’ll forgive the slightly blurry photo (my fault for not taking a tripod). Sunsets in the park can be spectacular at this time of year ― yes, we’re well and truly into autumn now in Christchurch.

      Yes, all of the above. This sketch was all about setting the trees on fire and so I painted the soft blue-greens to make the bright orange sunset really stand out… The acrylic version is different again (I’ll be posting that next Monday).

      I’m thrilled that it’s inspiring you to paint the esplanade (you can never have too many cherry trees)! I look forward to seeing it on your blog : )
