"Pohutukawa" 11x15" Oil on Canvas by Richard Robinson

View the Online Auction >>

You gotta love summer in New Zealand. Take the grey cloak of winter off and suddenly the beaches turn into dazzling jewels. This Pohutukawa tree was a real challenge today - trying to create its gnarled form under the dappled light was a true brain bender. In the end I decided to make a larger light area on the main trunk so I could give the painting a bit more considered structure rather than little spots of confusing light everywhere.

Thanks to Susan and Simon? for the photo.
