Amazing Invercargill Skies and Progress
Amazing Invercargill skies can be easily viewed from Tramway Road and Rockdale, I often pull my car off to the shoulder for a good view of the city. Beyond that, the Longwoods. Further north, the majestic Takitimu mountains tower over Southland closer to distant Fiordland. I couldn’t resist the allure of the clouds rolling in from the northwest .
Progress looms. The paddock is slated for around 600 new homes and shops that will most likely obstruct the exquisite view. Already, road works and ground preparation make it more challenging to pull over to enjoy a simple look. Such is progress. People need homes.
The result from Day 16 is titled “Southland Skies – Northerly View from Rockdale and Tramway“. The painting is for sale.
I invite you to watch the time-lapse video below.
If you’d like, paint along with me and post an image of your own daily painting on my Facebook page, Beverly Claridge, Artist.
