Vibrant Cathedral Cove: NZ Landscape painting.  An Original Acrylic Landscape Painting of Cathedral Cove in Hahei by Artist Kirsten McIntosh

Whilst spending some time at the beautiful Hahei Beach, in the Coromandel (North Island).  I made the early morning trek to Cathedral Cove.  The walk I needed to do by myself so I could stop and capture the beauty of it – truly spectacular.  I took shots at every bay and breathtaking vistas.

So finally at the end of the walk you come to Cathedral Cove.  There were a few people on the beach that morning but I decided to paint it in its serene form without anyone in view.  The crystal clear waters are as they appear and it is well worth the walk.

On the whole a great portion of my paintings involve water.  There is something special about being near the sea, surf, lakes or rivers.

I really enjoyed painting this piece – it seemed to just paint itself.  Every brush stroke brought this painting to life in particular the limestone Cliffs in the background – just a touch of light makes a world of difference.  I also especially enjoyed painting the wet sand and the different light that reflects off it.

Futhermore I always want my works to look consistent.  Six or seven colours are used in my paintings.  I am trying to achieve harmony within the painting and my whole landscape series.  I definately will be painting more of this area and scenes from this one walk.

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

Thanks for viewing.
