The artist for day 23 of #cjs20 was John DuVal, a painter who specialises in watercolour. He captured the light and the feel, more than the details, and that appeals to me. Initially I wasn’t going to try it, even though I do landscape painting. Tony asked why not and I didn’t have a good reason! I’m pleased I did because actually his approach suits me.
I visited Pukakaiki, on the West Coast of the South Island, in December with Alan and was fascinated by the rock formations. This small watercolour is based on one of the photos I took.
