Artist comment -
Waterlillies at Lake Te Koutu: came about when I was looking towards my first inspirations into painting. One of the many Masters that inspired me was Monet.
Our local lake (Te Koutu), in my home town Cambridge, New Zealand has a lovely little bridge and loads of water lillies. I merged the two images together in the hope that I would get a painting like Monets Lilly Pad painting. I was very happy with the end result. And it is one of my favourite paintings to date.
This painting is in an impressionist style and I felt a lot freeer painting in this style.
