This is a theme that has been popping up a bit this year.  A couple of weeks ago I was commissioned to do a painting to match one that one of my collectors  bought earlier in the year. She requested a similar scene but with a more moody/misty feel to it.

Here is the painting’s history.

OMG there’s an elephant in the sky!!

Which progressed to an under layer of colour and establishing the sky clouds.  These clouds flowed really smoothly – such a pleasure  to paint when it all works!

Unveiling I NZ Oil Painting - Kadira Jennings

Unveiling I


Morning Mist is the subject of this work. It would seem that I forgot to take any progress photos when painting it, sorry for that.  This work ‘Unveiling I’ is the first in a series of three paintings of the same subject.  As I looked over the back fence at WaiteteBay, across the hills one morning, I was fascinated by the way the morning mist caught the light as it burnt off the hills. It almost seemed as if the mist itself was on fire.
