Yeah yeah, I know that my challenge to myself this year was paint one watercolour each month of a North East scene but when we got back from our trip to the Canadian Rockies I was just itching to paint the mountains!
This is one of my favourite views in the world. I have been fortunate enough to have visited it twice now. I have also painted it twice. The first watercolour I did was many years ago for my dad as a present. Here is my latest one.
Mount Rundle is actually a range of peaks numbered from 1 - 7 that stretch from Banff to Canmore. This distinctive peak is number 1 at Banff, seen from Vermillion Lakes.
I used Cerulean Blue Hue, Prussian Blue, Cadmium Yellow Hue, Burnt Umber and Payne's Grey.
