Window at Mont Saint Michel

Window at Mont Saint Michel, France

Tonights painting is from a photo I took last October on a watercolor tour of France led by Paul Jackson. This was at Mont Saint Michel - a medieval abby and village on the Normandy coast.

This was very fun to paint. But I realized after I was done that I did not get the angles right on the stones to the left of the window. Its funny how much time you spend painting the parts of the painting you don't want the viewer to focus on!

  1. Mom,

    I really like this one - the angles be damned! I think it has a great subtlety and it really looks good from a distance. Way to go :)
