"Forest Deeps" Wilderness Landscape.
You can almost smell the peaty forest floor in this painting that captures the feel of the forest depths.
The large forest denizens form a solid backdrop against which the sparkling treeferns catch any shafts of light that penetrate through the forest canopy.
And mind where you tread - the bank falls away steeply here...
All my landscape paintings are painted from a background of having spent many hours in the New Zealand hill country and bush.
This work combines
realistic detail with an almost symbolic styling that
gives a real feeling of the special presence that can be
felt in the world's wild forests.
