tower


i have painted this tower at least 5 times till now.Every time i start with lot of enthusiasm,but always end up just painting upper portion only.The details of this british era buildings are too complicated for me! i have tried to show light play on tower rather than showing intricate details of mouldings etc.The lower portion is left blanck.Its a landmark structure in university campus,and once used to be a governers residence before independence.Its built in local stone and it looks majestic!

You have mentioned its british age building but the typical gothic style is not seen here. Also if its tall enough then I guess three point perspective would have highlighted that height in my opinion. Ofcource as I have not seen this building so my comment could be just paased as oneof.

nice play of light. And regarding not capturing the exact likeness- its called artistic freedom :)

thanks.Ajay you are right,i have not drawn the details thats the whole point!...as far as thitd vanishing point, if one is standing below tower it is applicable that too for taller towers.This is not so tall and seen from a distance.

This one shows your architectural bent. Like the soft colors that show the majesty of the building.
