"The Bay at Devonport-New Zealand"

"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.
