Mountain panorama

The wind rattled my windows and kept me up for half the night, but this morning the sky was wonderful. After my morning class I raced up to the top floor of my building at school to paint a view of the city that I can now only see in late fall or winter when the trees lose their leaves. As the sun broke through the clouds, the shapes of the buildings sharpened, and I captured my Montreal mountain panorama with a flat brush and dabs of mostly Quinacridone Gold, Burnt Sienna, Cobalt Blue and Alizarin Crimson.

    It’swonderful, everytime I try to do sky with mountains and trees, let’s say a bucolic scene I dont know why but I fail. I think it stresses me and I paint instead of just put watercolor. You, you got it!
