Tutored by three leading NZ artists over the last 25 years, and with work sold locally and internationally, Gaye Hall originally started painting oils on canvas but more recently has focused her work on waterborne paint finishes.
A few years ago she was contacted by the local Council to paint on a sheet of corrugated iron for outside decoration. This led Gaye to Resene Testpots and to experiment with outside art. Since then she has enjoyed painting on Riverstone Rocks - some have sold as trophies - as well as continuing painting on the iron. This latest outdoor art 'The Tui' is painted with Resene testpots on aluminium and framed with decking quality wood. Gaye says "I love the test pots and have found I can achieve the colours I want easily."
Gaye looks outside the normal canvas to find the foundation for her works. Her latest works are designed for exterior display so combine rugged materials and Resene Lumbersider satin waterborne paint to ensure they can withstand the elements.
Painted on sheet aluminium, primed with Resene Vinyl Etch then painted with Resene testpots.
