Artist's Description

Acrylic on art paper 10 × 14 in.

I would never have painted this had it not been for the inspiration of some visiting friends from the UK.

Coopers Beach is in Doubtless Bay in the Far North of NZ – just a little north of Mangonui. Great place to spend the summer holidays, and its pohuitukawa trees with their twisted roots grow right down onto the beach itself.

My friends were visiting for a few days. The wife wanted to go painting ‘en plein air’. I suggested a beach, but not having been near a beach or done any outside painting for years due to my mom’s illness, I was in doubt about painting ‘on demand’ and in public. However, I wanted to please her so we went – and this was my result in a couple of hours’ work. It turned out to be great fun, and a great inspiration for something to do.
