Can I paint in Green ?? mmmm

When I was in Auckland the other week for The NZ Art Guild Exhibition ... I was asked from someone do I ever paint Green Hills ??

mmmmm I had to think about that one and said No I havnt .... so I thought I would give it a go !!! .... Hehe most of my inspiration for painting comes from around the south Island and I just love the vast brown hills around during summer but I thought what a great challenge so here goes.....hehe

I thought I would show you some photos that inspired my next painting ...

"Akoroa " Banks Penisular New Zealand ... Just 85 kilometres from the city of Christchurch, New Zealand, Akaroa is an historic French and British settlement nestled in the heart of an ancient volcano




Different photos of Akoroa !!

Anyway I thought I would paint my take on Akoroa... in my Style of Painting ....with a little change on how I shade the hills....so here goes ... keep an eye out on this... as I seem to be on a real roll ..... I have only started the basics so far but am happy with the top hills and shading so will leave that for now .... I havnt done the sky yet... and loosley added the water ... now to hit the bottom hills..... be back soon ... :)
