Panorama for the Katikati Bioblitz

A while back I blogged about the Miranda Bioblitz.
Rather than repeat myself, please feel free to visit the two Miranda posts (if you don't know what a bioblitz is) here.
As I am on duty in the gallery during the bioblitz day, I am contributing a backdrop to the undertaking.  It's taken me about three weeks to paint the 8 panels (A2 each) in watercolour. This morning it was scanned and printed and laminated and when the panels are put side-by-side in the Katikati Hall tomorrow morning, it will be about 7 metres (yards) long.
Nothing like a bit of pressure to get me producing!

From the top of the Kaimai Range, down to the sea, with five vignettes.

Next day, in the hall:


  1. One word ...SPECTACULAR !

  2. At 7 metres long, that's some painting! Well done. It looks amazing!

  3. I wish I were over there to see it in person.
