This project was a commission for a large scale painting on three panels incorporating some of the familiar buildings and architecture of Hamilton New Zealand. The design for the concept was completed using digital photography, drawing and 2D compositing software. Fairfield Bridge forms the main structure of the composition. It is a well known bridge over the Waikato north of the city. I have rearranged the buildings to fit into the space of the painting. In the left panel on one hill is a Victorian water tower, in reality away from the bridge near the city centre, and in the right panel is Hamilton District Court.

The painting was painted on masonite board backed and supported with timber, sealed, ground of gesso and painted with Schminke oil paint.
The three panels completed in 2013 are now installed in the reception of Neverman Bennett Lawyers in Hamilton.
