Painting a series of the same view demonstrates how much nature actually changes in what at first glance is a static scene. I am still amazed as I look out upon the view in this painting how different it is at any given moment. I could likely paint hundreds of ten minute studies like these of this same view and still have no two exactly alike. Lighting changes by the minute and weather and seasons alter it all. Painting a series results in greater visual sensitivity and shows the limitless scope of nature’s views.
