Pataua is an amazing place. On a summer camping trip we stopped and spent the day in this quiet corner flapping around in the water with the kids and picnicking on the beach. Walking out on the trunk over the sparkling water the beauty of the place took my breath away and I just remember thinking, 'Wow - this is New Zealand right here!' Meaning that if one shimmering jewel of a scene were to sum up New Zealand's beauty, this would be it. Of course we have countless scenes which the same could be said for, but when this one caught my eye I HAD to paint it!
It's dramatic. The dark and light shapes are richly organic and really interesting to look at so there's a lot of action but these busy shapes are balanced nicely with large simple areas of color in the water and sky. The rich color is also well balanced by the dark greys found within the tree and shadows. All this adds up to variety which, apart from being the spice of life, is also the basis of all great painting.
