This painting started as a demonstration to the monthly Outdoor Painting Group of Watercolour New Zealand. It was one of those perfect painting mornings, no wind and clear blue sky. The sheds here are always good to paint and the blue launch made a perfect focal area.

Series of the three Lighthouses of New Zealand calendars (2000, 2001 and 2003) was a result of a five year project to capture, in watercolour, New Zealand's historic lighthouses, many of them dating to 1865.
It involved helicopter, boat and 4-wheel drive trips to the various sites. Jacky also researched and wrote a history of all these lighthouses and interviewed many ex-keepers.
