About Me

I'm Paul Cato, a professional New Zealand artist, and I have recently moved north from Queenstown, where my painting career began, to the Kowhai Coast near Warkworth. My specialty is painting large vistas, and my primary medium is oils.

Coming up

By Paul Cato | May 3, 2007

I’ve been working on a painting which is bigger than I have painted in a while. No pictures just yet, sorry, but I will definitely take time soon to post some images which will show the progress on this canvas. Oh yes, the size – I nearly forgot. This painting is eight feet wide by five feet nine inches high, about 2.44 metres by 1.75 metres, so just the sheer size alone is very impressive. The canvas matches the grandness of the subject very well. The scene is from Milford Sound in the Fiordland National Park of south-west New Zealand.

Painting a fine art piece on a canvas this size has it’s challenges in both planning and execution but I’m loving it! Check back in a while to see what I have been doing.
