"Lake Brunner"

Winner of the Watercolour New Zealand Supreme Award at Splash® 2016 - Watercolour NZ Annual Exhibition

“Many happy holidays were spent around the shores of Lake Brunner with family and arty friends. The colours and atmosphere are almost indelible. With almost every painting l do, l plan the composition first, then decide on my colour palette which was cobalt blue dark, raw umber, a splash of yellow and indigo for the darks. The most difficult and stressful part was the reflections where, because l was working very wet on wet, the pigment had to be so strong. I have to confess to using an opaque white for breeze lines. It was a happy experience when it all worked. You all know the feeling!”
