Acrylic on Paper, 30 x 21cm,  20/1/17 

This was painted from a picnic bench outside the Gables Lakefront Motel, Lake Taupo, New Zealand after a day of hiking. This is the largest lake in the country and the mountains that can be seen in the background are Mount Ruapehu, the Volcano and Tongariro National Park that are featured in my other pictures. It was painted as the sun was setting and the warm colours of the sun were reflecting on the water. It was a clear sky with only a few clouds and it actually got quite cold by the time I was finishing this piece as the temperature drops quite a lot in the evening.
