I'm working on a giant painting of Mitre Peak at the moment, from when we went to Milford Sound on tour back in February. And I've got another giant canvas sitting in my room, which made me think I should also do a giant painting of the Manukau heads. So a couple of Sundays ago we took a drive out to the Otuataua stonefields to take a few reference photos and watch the sun go down.
Such a beautiful and slightly eerie place.
There is an avocado orchard there that is part of the regional park and you can take five avocados per person. Note to self to go back in avocado season!
