Supermoon at Twilight

Supermoon at Twilight — acrylic on canvas, 305 x 405 mm, 2018. Available.

‘Supermoon at Twilight’ is a revisiting of my study of a supermoon over Moorhouse Ave, Christchurch, in 2013. The new version was painted on a black canvas (of course!). The work-in-progress images (below) show i) work on the composition (mainly tweaking the city silhouette) and ii) changes to the underpainting colours prior to adding the final layers. Go, moon, go!

It is now available on Etsy.

The High Country

The High Country — acrylic on canvas panel, framed, 205 x 255 mm, 2018. Available soon.

If you’ve ever been through Springfield on your way to the west coast of New Zealand’s South Island, you would have seen this view of Mt Torlesse, Korowai/Torlesse Tussocklands Park. It is one of my favourite parts of the country. It’s also a landscape that I painted in 2014 which you can see here. I found it interesting comparing the two paintings ~ four years has gone by in my art journey and I hope I’ve learnt a thing or two along the way.

‘The High Country’ is currently waiting to be framed and will be available on Etsy in a couple of weeks. It is the first of a number of landscapes that I’ve decided to revisit and paint again, this time as part of my ‘black canvas experiment’.

And I’m not going to get tired of painting on black canvas any time soon.

Together

Working Together, They Proved Everybody Wrong — acrylic on canvas, 100 x 100 mm each, 2018. Available.

Two more mini paintings ~ the title is another of my six-word stories: “Working together, they proved everybody wrong”. It seemed as good a title as any.

I have been revamping listings on Etsy to show how my paintings and note cards could look when displayed in rooms (or, as I like to call them, drawing rooms). The process of ‘framing’ them was fascinating, to see what worked and what didn’t. These are a few favourites.
