Taranaki Farm Gate #5

5th in a series, the other 4 attached. This image pushes the Kiwiana button it seems, a Taranaki dairy farm’s postbox (with Swiss eagle?) and delivery shed.

#5 is oils on an old Norwegian pine cupboard door. #1-4 are sepia ink, oils and pen


      1. I think the idea of a subject being so fascinating and with so much depth requiring this kind of exploration, well, I like it, and I can see how rewarding it is to really know and explore. In the past I am not sure I would have understood it, always looking for variety, but as I am getting older I maybe am more contemplative? or see things I did not, before. I think it is great what you did here.

      2. Still doing it actually, starting another one, sketch is again from memory so its different, but mainly different style, shorter brushstrokes, adjacent complementary colours, will see how it goes (more a case of seeing what could be there than what is – you’re an expert at that!) Thanks Claudia)
