FIORDLAND, NEW ZEALAND – WATERCOLOUR SKETCH

FIORDLAND, NEW ZEALAND - WATERCOLOUR SKETCH

I was really looking forward to visiting Milford Sound and Doubtful Sound. The pictures of the places were fabulous. Sunny blue vistas. I thought that at least one day would be good. What they don’t say is that they receive 7 metres of rainfall per year and two in every three days are wet or very wet.
So despite the wet weather they were magnificent. Sublime as the Romantics would say. Their sheer size overwhelms and the sun did flicker through on the final day briefly before more rain fell.
So I didn’t do any painting as I planned. This is a quick sketch of what I remembered, done when I got back to the hotel. At least I have some photos.
