No. 29 – Jerusalem
There was also a request for the dome of Temple Mount, known to Muslims as the Haram esh-Sharif and the Al Aqsa Compound, to be seen on the horizon. It’s true location sits away to the right of this view, but hopefully this composition feels real enough and provides a contrasting focal point in the distance. I’m already wondering about creating a twin scene from the other direction, surely it would make an interesting pair of studies. ‘Jerusalem’ was painted with acrylic and ink, on a 70 x 50 cm deep edge canvas. You can follow along with my world series here on the studio blog, facebook, twitter or instagram.
