"A Portrait of Southland":
A Portrait of Southland is a personal view of the Region in watercolour by Ron Esplin. Ron Esplin presents a twenty page book featuring 34 paintings and editorial about Southland and the locations featured. It measures 20cm x 20cm. This new edition is the 2015 publication.
Ron is a full time professional artist working from his studio in Central Dunedin. He is a member of the Otago Art Society, the South Canterbury Art Society, and Watercolour New Zealand.
His paintings are represented in homes, businesses and galleries throughout New Zealand. Among others, he is represented in the collections of the Dunedin City Council, the Dunedin Public Library, and the Forrester Gallery in Oamaru.
Southland is the most sparsely populated Southern region of New Zealand. It is famed for native bird sanctuaries and an untouched natural environment. A quarter of Southland's land area is protected as part of the Fiordland and Rakiura national parks, and conservation and sustainability projects are key activities.
The largest city of Invercargill is a laid back town with a Scottish heritage but like the rest of Southland it takes a little while to learn to love. Other centres tend to be smaller such as Gore and Mataura, and many towns are quite rural and quaint such as Mataura, Riverton, Winton, and Tuatapere. But the region is at once charming and majestic. Charming as in the little fishing village of Cosy Nook for example, and majestic as in the towering Southern Alps to the West sheltering lakes such as Manapouri and Hauroko, the deepest lake in New Zealand.
