About this artwork

Cooks Beach (Pukaki) is a sheltered white sandy beach with Pōhutukawa trees and “bunny tail” sand tussocks waving gently in the breeze. The three-kilometre long beach is on the east coast of the Coromandel Peninsula of New Zealand and is protected from the open ocean so does not get the big surf found on other beaches along the coastline. This makes Cooks Beach a wonderful place for families to enjoy the long summer days in and out of the water.
This scene shows the warm sun filtering through the sane dune tussocks on a warm quiet summer afternoon with the gentle surf beyond lapping at the shore. The beautiful Pōhutukawa trees in bloom provide shade from the sun. I enjoyed painting these, the lovely tones of green, the fiery reds and the tiny details in the masses of stamens. – Michelle Bellamy

Artist bio

Michelle Bellamy is a contemporary painter living in Nelson, specialising in capturing the New Zealand landscape with exquisite detail.

An avid mountaineer, Bellamy takes inspiration from exploring the corners and nooks of New Zealand’s lakes and surrounding inhabited landscapes. Back in the studio she creates meticulously detailed large and mid-scale paintings in acrylic on board. Her captivating geographic representations register and acknowledge a human presence on the landscape through the inclusion of familiar features such as South Island cribs and huts, set amongst exquisitely rendered tussock grasses and native flora. Bellamy’s precision brushwork and skilful layering of colour serves to intensify the clarity of New Zealand’s natural light and beauty.
