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.

    1. 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).
