Detail: Having recently moved to Tauranga I wanted to paint a local scene. The pohutukawa, Mount, harbour, and Matakana are key elements. The bonus was that by painting “en plein” (in the open) I enjoyed meeting local people on the Matua walkway. So it was not only the elements of the scene but the process of painting that together captured many of the things I love about this beautiful city.
