Lunchtime panorama number 10Posted: November 14, 2016
I’m not really sure how many times I’ve painted this panorama of Montreal from a window at school. I’m guessing about 10, so I used that in the title. It’s at least that many, if not more. This is a view I can only paint it in the late fall and winter when the leaves have fallen from the trees and I can actually see the mountain. Every year as the branches grow, more and more of the view is obscured, and eventually I’ll have to stand on a crate to paint it, but it’s a place I love to set up at. Besides the window ledge that is perfect to paint on, the nearby stairwell makes it a great spot for students to gather, so I I end up spending some time chatting with anyone who looks over my shoulder.
