The Explorer – Rapa Nui: Original NZ Painting


A large 24″ x 36″ (610 mm x 910) Acrylic Painting on Professional Canvas 1.45″ wide (37 mm)

Finished beautifully front and back.  Signed on the front with my signature in gold pen and dated on the back.

This piece is hand painted on box canvas.   This painting has many acrylic layers that build up the colours and depth.

This comes ready to hang and shipped in safe packaging.  This painting was completed in 2017.  The watermark logo seen in the image is to prevent the image being used without permission.

Please allow one week to process your order, whilst I make sure it is in pristine condition and to create postage and packaging for shipment.  I’ll be in contact with the exact timeframes to ship it to your destination.

It is advisable to measure out the painting using the dimensions above, to make sure it will fit your space perfectly. In-situ images are not to be used as a guide.

Keep in mind that all computer monitors display colour differently, so your painting may differ slightly in colour from the image you see onscreen.


‘The Explorer – Rapa Nui’:  An Original New Zealand Portraiture painting of The Explorer – Rapa Nui by Artist Kirsten McIntosh

This lovely lady The Explorer – Rapa Nui is from the Easter Islands.  I loved the strength that she shows.  She is one of the first people that I have painted.  I enjoyed trying to get the facial features in perspective and tried to pay special attention to the shells and feathers on the cloak.  I really wanted these to stand out.

The feeling of this painting evokes great strength and wisdom.  There was something about this image that drew me to her.

I really love this piece and it is one of my favourite works to date.

All of the colours in the painting work together and I only use five or so colours in each of my paintings to create a cohesive series of work.

I’d love for you to check out some of my other portraiture paintings when they become available.
