“I need to know everything there is to know about colour”.
Douglas Badcock was Queenstown’s first full-time artist who preferred to paint en plein-air, (open air) in oil and watercolour, is described as a dedicated realist artist, who captured fresh inspirations; experimented with new techniques to express his innermost feelings in relation to the beauty he saw.
