pritty happy with this one. I mean 4-5 more architectures I think I could probably feel pritty comfy creating some of my own scenes. Lately ive been using photo refrences to try and give me a idea of a style of architecture but trying to use that refrence to create my own painting. Its a great way to study but really challengeing when you see this amazing picture of such a beautiful building and you cant capture such beauty.

frustrating, you sure you didn't mean 'challenging'? Its interesting to hear you mention trying 4 or 5 and then doing your own. Interesting idea. Kind of like learning a language.

I like the fact that the character is a bit off center, Its a great focal point, but not boring. Looking forward to the next 5!

Nice :) I would use some harder brushes in the foreground. Shadows from the plants in the foreground seem a bit grayed out. Try using some more of that purple.

fo sho. Yeah I got another crit on CA.org that was stated to use some of those harder brushes in the foreground. I was just trying to make the eye rest so the foreground wasnt really the focal point.

A cool trick to pull that off is to have an object (maybe a plant in this case) Right up front just in front of the viewer, Really blurred. Helps force the viewer to see it as a focal shift from the FG

Yay! I loved curves in architecture! Out of curiosity...where were the reference pics from? If I had to, I'd guess a combination of India, China, and Turkey. Am I anywhere near close?
Forgive me for something so trivial...but those square wine-red lines on the upper balcony are so straight and dark that they caught my eye. Did you do something different with them?

It was India refrence but most of the buildings i have painted are pagodas so i could see some of that coming threw. I dont really think I did anything different with the lines.
