NZ South Island Landscape Paintings


  • Acrylic painting titled SUN AND SHADOWS-POA
    Large square painting from Lake Alexandrina,Canterbury. Approx sizes W76cm, H-76cm, D3.8cm. In this painting I wanted to show a beautiful sunny winters day, the sun so bright it made the branches on the tree glow. Also the little boat house to the side and the stones in the front showing how super clear water the water was.
  • Acrylic painting titled GLORIOUS WANAKA- POA
    Large narrow painting from Milford Beach, AKL. Approx sizes W-91cm, H-45.2cm, D-3.8cm. Large signed acrylic painting on boxed canvas, with painted edges, and sealed ready to hang. Although I have painted quite a few paintings featuring Wanaka, this painting was on my todo list as I wanted to feature the driftwood in a painting. For me it showed such beauty with the light catching it and bringing out so many colours even though the tree was dead.
  • Acrylic painting titled BEAM OF LIGHT- POA
    Large painting from Nugget Point Lighthouse, Clutha. Approx sizes W-91cm,H-61.5cm,D-3.8cm. Large signed acrylic painting on boxed canvas, with painted edges, and sealed ready to hang. Although I went to Nugget Point on a cold windy day, it was still beautiful with the grasses in foreground waving about leading the eye to the lighthouse.
  • Landscape painting titled MOVING FORWARD-POA
    Large painting from Lake Rotoiti, Nelson lakes Nat Park. Approx sizes W-91.20cm,H-60.7cm, D-3.8cm. Large signed acrylic painting on boxed canvas, with painted edges, and sealed ready to hang. In this painting I wanted to have the clouds and mountains reflected in the water and the jetty leading the eye to the horizon.
  • Landscape painting PADDLE READY-POA
    Painting from Lake Wanaka,SI. Approx sizes W-70.8,H56cm, D3.8cm. Medium signed acrylic painting on boxed canvas, with painted edges, and sealed ready to hang. The kayaks featured in the painting were so bright they almost seemed a little cheeky. The small details like the ropes and signage on the boats required a lot of patience and it took a while to do.
  • Landscape painting titled Shades of Autumn- POA
    Large square painting from Lake Alexandrina,Canterbury. Approx sizes W76cm, H-76cm, D3.8cm.
    Lake Alexandrina is for me one of the most beautiful lakes in NZ no matter the season. I have been there in Autumn (pictured above with autumn colours on the leaves) as well as winter and summer.
  • Landscape painting titled MAGICAL MILFORD-POA
    Large painting from Milford Sounds,SI. Approx sizes W-91.3cm, H-60.7cm, D-3.8cm. Milford Sounds has many moods and this was one of them, with a very cloudy sky and a patch of blue with the sun trying to break through.

Lake Alexandrina is in the Mackenzie region, not far from Lake Tekapo. This was my third painting from there as I found it so beautiful with the snow capped mountains reflecting in the blue waters of the lake. There were some boats lying on the shore and ducks and birds walking about, so I included them into this scene.

    Finished this painting just before lockdown. We took a boat trip to see the Split Apple Rock in Tasman Bay. Although the day was overcast, the colours & reflections still came through beautifully when I took the photos, so it made for a very worthwhile subject

    Driving along Arthurs Pass, South Island we stopped to look at this amazing view, the sun peaking out and shining on the distant field, the beautiful flowers growing wild, and the mist coming down on the mountains. It felt like a slice of heaven.
  • GO WITH THE FLOW - POA
    Large painting - Sizes: Height 23.81 inches (approx. 60.5cm) Width 35.5 inches (approx. 91.5cm) Depth 1.49 inches (approx.3.8cm)This is the latest painting in my South Island series and features a pebbly stream running into Lake Coleridge and mountains in the background. With the sunny yellow wildflowers on the sides on the stream and the dry yellow long grasses and the blues of the skys gave it such a cheerful vibe and painting it was a happy experience for me.
