Christine Parnell

Christine is a Napier-based artist, and has been painting for more than 20 years, and drawing for most of her life.

She is inspired by our wonderful scenery and loves to paint en plein air along the waterfront or in the city where there are many great subjects.

Christine loves the beautiful colour and transparency that watercolours can bring to a painting, and also the fact that it is a medium that keeps you on your toes!

Christine belong to the Humanity Painters art group where she paints in acrylic, although these days she finds herself using watercolour more and more.

Christine is very eclectic in the methods that she uses to attain the result she wants, and while she is self-trained she uses ideas from many sources.
