These are small oil paintings based on the New Zealand hills. They range in style from somewhat representational through to works with more abstract marks and thicker application of the paint. The oil on canvas paintings are built up with multiple layers and glazes in a traditional oil painting method. Gestural drawing using charcoal and graphite is also worked into the wet paint. The canvases are all 200mm square and are finished in ornate frames crafted especially for the exhibition.
