‘The Eye of the Beholder’:  An Original New Zealand Landscape painting of Maungatautari Mountain by Artist Kirsten McIntosh

This image was purchased from a professional photographer. The strong colours of the image and the contrast and highlights on the hills versus the dramatic clouds is what I was drawn to.

I tried to loosen up my style for this painting.  Such as returning to oil paints which I find to be more free flowing.  The painting also has an acrylic underpainting to try and create depth.

The image is of Taotaoroa Road with Mount Maungatautari in the distance, near Cambridge New Zealand.

This is a very iconic piece of landscape in our town of Cambridge.  Maungatautari is often described as toku maunga (my mountain).  Furthermore my two sons and I have been on many school trips to this mountain and I have also traversed it which was spectacular.  Consequently a trip to the birdlife sanctuary was made and it was incredible.  It is a wonderful mountain to visit for so very many reasons!

The painting was named “The eye of the Beholder” as I am in an experimentational phase in my art journey.  I am trying to find the best fit for my work and style and it is so cool to explore new ideas and avenues.

Prints of this artwork are available on request through my contact page.

Thank for viewing.
