"View From The Pillars After The Storm"
(Whirinaki Forest)

Oil on canvas
1040mm x 830mm

Private collection: R Cyca

This is my third picture of Whirinaki, a Forest Park area adjacent to what was then Uruwera National Park. The first work was a pen & ink drawing in tiny dots, which was released as a limited edition. The second was another oil painting on canvas.

To get the reference photographs I needed, I went tramping around the forest for a couple of days with a young ranger from the park centre,

The client had a love of the bush and had spent a great deal of time in Whirinaki himself.

Large parts of the park remain covered in native forest featuring rimu, totara, kahikatea, matai and miro.
