The best thing about painting the Danseys Pass

This is the final painting inspired by our journey through New Zealand’s South Island Danseys Pass in March 2020, right before lockdown.  The journey and the lockdown are inextricably linked in my mind as an incredible personal and historic time.  But it’s time to move on.  The dynamic Southland skies come to fore on Monday.

These 10 paintings have proven daunting, at times, and rewarding.  As an artist who has relished the comfort of routine,  I’m seeing the benefit of learning a new way of doing things; principally, I’ve loosened up. 

The result from Day 9  is entitled “Journey Through the Danseys Pass – In the Pass”. 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.
