Paint this gorgeous view of the Oriental Bay boatsheds, with St Gerard's Monastery against a purple sunset!

This popular waterfront begins just beyond Te Pepa, with the colourful boatsheeds marking the beginning of Oriental Parade. Displayed in this painting are Sheds 2 – 13, the earliest of the boat houses constructed in 1905.

Among others, you will learn techniques of painting reflections in water.
