On Waitangi Day I walked at Governors Bay. It was a grey day. I enjoyed the view of the mudflats with the crisscrossing waterways, the gleaming puddles and the forms and colours of grasses and flaxes with Banks Peninsula in the background. I wanted to try to paint the opposites, strong and soft colours, straight lines and flowing ones, showing depth and distance, making patterns.
