Painting something that’s been painted a million times before -- from a new angle

 Victoria Glacier from Mount Fairview

Watercolour and oil pastel

We’ve all been doing a lot less travelling this year, and I’m fresh out of recent location sketches or photos of my own to use as references for painting landscapes.

Fortunately, one of our daughters and her family have been similarly encouraged to stay in one province and have ventured out (and up) to places in Alberta even they had never set foot on before, and they’ve sent lots of pictures.

This painting is an abstracted version of the view of much-photographed and painted Victoria Glacier from the top of Mount Fairview.
