Taj Mahal through the mist: new paintings

Still inspired by mother India, this is today's creation of the Taj Mahal, oil on canvas 18 x 13 cm. I chose to use a very limited palet of colours and began with a ground layer of Napels yellow, a light warm yellow, which creates a bit of warmth through the cool grey blues. What a fantastic work of architecture it is!

  1. Wow this is just so beautiful! And how amazing since I just updated my desktop wallpaper to the Taj Mahal, dreaming of the day I will stand before it, in awe. I am in awe of your stunning depiction of it, thank you for sharing.
