If this looks familiar, it may be because it’s an acrylic version of a watercolour study I posted last month. Some Moeraki boulders weigh several tonnes and the largest are three metres in diameter but what impresses me the most about these amazing mudstone concretions is knowing that they are the result of erosion. I would find it much easier to believe that they fell from the sky!

P.S. I’m now working on Moeraki (two), looking in the opposite direction (towards the cliffs).

    Just thinking of their size before erosion !… love the movement of sand and water all swirling round the rock …
