Moehau Sunshower is another in the series of works depicting areas of the Coromandel Peninsula in New Zealand. It is a beautiful place, much of it isolated rugged country.
We used to go camping there as a family, when I was a girl. My dad driving, towing a caravan over the dangerous, switchback turns of the gravel road, which was barely wide enough for the caravan, nevermind meeting a car coming the other way.
When we first began going there, the only way across the mountains to the other side was the notorious Tapu Hill road, famous for its dangerous conditions.
Moehau Sunshower is further north near the top of the Peninsula and often plays host to dramatic weather conditions, in this case a beautiful sunshower. Here is the beginning stage of the work, just working in over the underpainting with a preliminary colour wash.
And then there is the finished work…..
The size of the work is 24″ x 16″.
