Pelinggih - stages 1 and 2
Pelinggih is the name for this type of shrine found in the padi fields of Bali and are dedicated to the rice goddess Dewi Shri. I am trying out working on canvas again, this one I want to look quite soft, the lighting being influenced by the work of Bernie Fuchs. As you can see, it starts off with a "drawing" in Burnt Sienna oil and then I have filled in everything in bright but tonal transparent colours ready for the opaque colours tomorrow.
