Mitre Peak

When we were on tour in the South Island in February we were lucky enough to play in Milford Sound, be taken out into the sound on a boat and visit the very magical underwater fish observatory.  When we arrived there in the early evening the light was very magical and I snapped a fuzzy picture of Mitre Peak on my phone, to capture the colours.  I knew I wanted to turn it into a painting so the last couple of months I've been working on it, with half my bedroom floor covered in a drop cloth and strewn with paints.  And here it is hanging in our lounge:
You can see how very full of granny squares our couch one stage we had so many granny square rugs we had to keep some of them in the car!
I'm having fun doing some landscape painting...I think next up will be one of the Manukau Heads!


  1. That is so beautiful, Emily. You are super-clever. x

  2. This looks awesome... love it!
    Fiordland is such a stunning area. You've really done it justice here.

    1. Thanks Lou! I was so excited to go to Fiordland, I would love to go back!

  3. This is such a beautiful painting! Do you have any for sale? Stoked to find your blog : )

  4. Thanks Sarah! I don't have any for sale at the moment, but am planning to do some more paintings like this soon. I'm also happy to take commissions :)
