|"The Bay at Devonport-New Zealand", 6x9 watercolor|
No, this isn't Tampa. This is New Zealand! Chris and I spent the month of January touring New Zealand and Australia. It was the trip of a lifetime and we had a wonderful time. I brought my watercolor kit (because watercolors are faster and oil painting gear is too bulky) and stopped to do a sketch when I could.
After a looong day of travel (Tampa to Houston to Los Angeles to Auckland) we finally arrived in New Zealand. Auckland is a small city with a beautiful harbor surrounded by rolling hills. We took the ferry to Devonport, which is a cute little town with lots of summer cottages. Chris and I had a delicious picnic lunch sitting on a park bench looking out over this cerulean water.
