Banff from all angles I

Looking West

This is the first of a series of four little paintings based on larger, more detailed pictures I’d done earlier. This one is based on a monotype I printed in 1995 and wrote a blog post about in2013

That monotype was based on a photograph of Banff taken looking west from the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity (Banff School of Fine Arts when I attended classes there as a teenager) – an unusual angle compared to the more famous views looking north from the top of the Banff Gondola and looking east from the Mt. Norquay ski area.  I’ll write about paintings of Banff from these two angles, plus another unusual angle looking south toward Goat Mountain in the next few weeks.
