I recently painted another painting looking out my studio windows. This time I painted in pastel looking directly north towards the Sangre de Christo mountains. This view I have painted many times and like anything in nature, the subject is never static. The view is overwhelmingly different every day, every minute of the day!
Painting this scene reminds of Monet’s experience with the Rouen Cathedral series that he did in France in the 1890’s. He did over 30 paintings of the very same subject from the exact same view and they are all spectacularly different. That series of Claude Monet, is an eye feast!
Because this subject is what I see everyday out my studio windows, I do intend to do a consistent series when I get to it.
