Sunlit Surf: NZ Landscape Art


A large 30″ x 30″ (765 mm) Acrylic Painting on Canvas 1.45″ wide (37 mm)

Finished beautifully front and back.  Signed on the front with my signature in gold pen.

It is painted on the edges so no need for framing.

Protected with matt varnish to protect against uv light and it is easy to spot clean.

This piece is hand painted on a box canvas.   This painting has many acrylic layers that build up the colours and depth.

This painting was completed in 2016.

‘Sunlit Surf’:  An Original New Zealand Landscape painting of  beautiful Te Kaha with Sunlit Surf by Artist Kirsten McIntosh


I took this image whilst visiting Te Kaha over Christmas/New Years.  Te Kaha is a small New Zealand community situated in the Bay of Plenty near Ōpōtiki.

It is a very quiet and tranquil spot to visit.  Our kids had a lovely time discovering all of the rocks and paddling in the surf.  They were still very young when we made this visit and this painting brings back lots of lovely memories from our few days spent in this lovely community.

I loved the late afternoon sun in the photo and I enjoyed putting in all of the different colours into the wet sand.

I really feel that the colours merge in this painting and it is very cohesive.  The rich colours in this painting are unified.   I only use five or so colours so that all of my work has a consistent look.

This piece got through to the pre-selection of the Molly Morpeth Canaday Award 2017 which was fantastic to achieve.

This painting is available through Mobile Art Gallery.  Currently this painting is on loan through the gallery – however prints of this artwork are available on request through my contact page.

Thanks for viewing.
