After a heavy storm sweeping North of the North Island leaving 5,000 hectares of farmland under water, we went to paint. There wasn't much damage at the boat club except a little yacht was tilled over. It made a good pose with a bit of sunlight on it. I captured this image as a record for the memory of the surprised storm July 2014 which broke the local perception of a Winterless North Island! It was probably the first time few thousand homes of the population experienced a few winter night without electricity! A cool grayish tone was used for the lingering effect of the storm, warm colors were used in the foreground to depict the warm light that we enjoyed at the moment of painting. We had a great time. I am happy finishing the picture with a warm cup of herbal tea and a nut bar. It was a wonderful treat!
