Rocks and Reflections: Riverton’s Sunset Magic

Oil / 76 x 50.5 cm / Canvas

As I make my way back from Milford Sound in Te Anau, I am drawn to the charming fishing town of Riverton, just a 30-minute drive from Invercargill. This town holds a special place in my heart, especially during the enchanting evening hours when the sun sets over its picturesque shores.

Recently, I completed an oil painting that captures the essence of this tranquil fishing town. The backdrop features a multitude of fishing boats gently swaying in the tide as the sun dips below the horizon, casting a warm, golden glow across the landscape. The incoming tide adds a sense of movement and life to the scene.

What truly made this painting unique were the colorful, petite rocks that adorned the shoreline, providing a captivating foreground for my canvas. With delicate brush strokes and a keen eye for detail, I’ve managed to bring this serene moment to life on my canvas.

This painting is just one of several in my collection that seeks to preserve the beauty and serenity of Riverton, especially during those magical sunset hours when the town truly comes alive with its natural charm. (eof)
