About Judith Moreton
Judith Moreton was born in Palmerston North and has painted professionally for over thirty five years. Although best known for her depictions of the lush New Zealand bush, it was a seascape entitled Dawn, Halfmoon Bay, Stewart Island that was awarded first prize in the annual competition held by International Artists Magazine. The judging panel noted the 'beauty of light, tone and sheer magnificence' qualities present in all of Judith's work.
Preferring to work with a limited palette, the artist uses undiluted oil, straight from the tube. She chooses basic earth tones such as terre verte, sienna, yellow ochre with olive greens introducing shadows and contrast. A completed work welcomes the viewer to a refreshing world of greenery, peace and birdsong.
