Yes, it’s the Kaikoura coast again ― same view, same reference photograph ― but every time I paint it, I see something different. I’ll post a photograph of the final painting just as soon as I’m ready to leave it alone.

Canterbury

Canterbury art card 2015

‘Canterbury’ is a new note card/art card available from my Etsy shop. The original was painted a couple of years ago and has always been a bit of a favourite. It began life as a digital background for a student project in 2011 (see below) and I liked it so much that I decided to paint it. And print it. And frame it.

The landscape is based on several different photographs rather than a single location but it is still a typical Canterbury scene, even if I did leave out the rivers, the houses, and the sheep.

Here is the final painting (click here to see the original post). Yes, the colours are a little unusual ― it makes me think of old photographs and also the way memories can play tricks on us.

‘On the road again’ is now available for purchase.
