I stopped earlier and painted a early morning roadside scene, but that was just a warm up piece. I wanted more. I drove up to a hillside suburb and knocked on the door of a house with a spectacular view of the town of Te Awamutu ( home of Neil Finn of Crowded house fame) . The young family kindly obliged my request to paint from their lawn and even offered me a coffee! Thank you!
Autumn colours are making a riot of most scenes at the moment (rock on, Mother Nature! ) and I loved the contrast of the obviously mad-made factory building in amongst the gorgeous colour. That is a dairy factory.......I think they make products using milk, like milk powder etc.....
