Radio Ngati Hine is a great station located here in Whangarei, Northland, New Zealand. Robert does a regular show wherein he interviews local artists each Friday at 11:30.
Thanks to Robert and Radio Ngati Hine for putting me on their program. I hope you all enjoy it!
A bit about "Afternoon Trail". This is quite different subject matter for me. Asw most of you know I like to paint trees in fields with interesting skies. "Afternoon Trail" is a big departure from this. This inspiration comes from a trip I made to England with my wife a year ago.
One great thing about England id the country lanes that border many fields and that are open to people that want to walk about. Many of these trails are bordered with trees that create a canopy over the path. In "Afternoon Trail" I'm trying to capture that intimate feeling of being in shade looking out into a brighter landscape.
I'm fairly pleased with this painting though it is different than my usual. It features a lot of imagination as the photo reference I took in England has tons more detail and far less color.
