A view of Lake Wanaka from 'The Neck' a narrow strip of land between Lakes Wanaka and Hawea.

In the early days of 2010 I was traveling in this region and caught this view of the lake on a misty day. Rain was in the air and it was all utterly beautiful as always in this area. I decided to do this painting but on beginning it found I was moved to change the time of day and the weather. Oh the power! The power of an artist! I had so much fun and yet at the same time a challenge to turn a blue/grey misty day into a dramatic sunset evening. It added even more drama and mood to the work and I was pleased with acceptance of such a challenge.
