It is hard trying to get a photo of geese standing still...not long after I had taken this it jumped in the pond and paddled off! I really liked the back light and often I'm not in the right place so I was pleased I managed it this time!!
The birds have taken over again! This is the first painting of three... the next in line is a goose. I never get tired of painting these spoonbills, they are so elegant the way they wade in the shallow water. This one stood knee deep in the water while I snapped the photo... I love them!
My 6 paintings for a group exhibition! X-tra – the Local Art Exhibition & Sale, combines the work of both established and emerging Hawke’s Bay artists June 17th - July 7th at Creative Arts Napier. Opening night on the Saturday18th! Fun night!!
