A Sidestreet In Madurai - stage 5
OK pretty much finished the walls nearest to the viewer and have made a start on the shrine. I'm hopefully using things I have learned from all those two-day paintings (one of the reasons why I do them) as this will be a relatively busy and complicated picture and I don't want to paint it too tight but keep the brushwork relatively loose over the whole painting. I still have the problem of making the shrine "sit" in the setting without looking separate from it or from dominating it due to it's vibrant colour.
