I have a couple of new pieces at Arts on Oxford at the moment for their Te Wai Pounamu exhibition of South Island landscape artists.  Both pieces are scenes from the Arthurs Pass region and I’ve gone for quite a monochrome palette focusing on the mood and textures of the area.  The larger of the two is called Ice and is of Lake Lyndon mid winter.  I’ve explored a new technique using plastic wrap to help create the ice texture and it’s been really successful.
